It is the goal of ModernGraham.com to study and modernize the theories of Benjamin Graham.
ModernGraham.com started with a simple discussion about Benjamin Graham’s The Intelligent Investor and its continued relevance today. After the discussion, Benjamin Clark studied the methods put forward by Graham and modified them slightly to meet the needs and conditions of the current market. When it was determined that strictly following a modernized set of rules based on Graham’s original investing strategies would lead to low risk and high return portfolios, Benjamin Clark and Jonathan Ritchie decided to start a blog to discuss these findings with other intelligent investors. The site was developed and officially launched in August of 2006.
Benjamin graduated cum laude with his J.D. from DePaul University College of Law, and also received a Certificate in Taxation. He passed the Illinois Bar Exam in July 2013 and will be licensed to practice law in Illinois beginning on October 31, 2013. He will be building a legal practice in the areas of Estate Planning, Taxation, and Non-Profits. He also holds a Bachelor of Science in Finance (Honors) from DePaul University College of Commerce.
