Studying the value investment strategy at the business school made a huge impression on me and greatly influenced my personal and professional life. This strategy also resonates with my own principles. Through learning about the great value investors and my own experience, I am convinced that to succeed in the investing one has to act as an owner, not as an overnight speculator. One also needs to be prudent, non-profligate and disciplined both in private and investing activities. Although it might give one a seemingly effortless comfort of consensus, I find that just following the stream can, at times, be a misleading path. In fact, if one adheres to one’s own sound judgement, convictions, and act with integrity upon these, this will yield the desired outcome. It is also important to realize one’s shortcomings in predicting the market and I believe that the margin of safety is the best approach.
