The ModernGraham Approach to Investing

Ben Clark started ModernGraham in 2006 after a simple discussion with his fellow DePaul University Finance Honors student Jon Ritchie about Benjamin Graham’s The Intelligent Investor.  Ben found Graham’s work to be particularly fascinating and spot-on after having learned a hard lesson from a failed investment in high school.  After discussing how Graham’s methods could be applied today, Ben went about tweaking some of Graham’s core principles to make them more relevant in the current financial atmosphere.

The first few years of ModernGraham saw some periodic changes to the methodology, as Ben continued to develop the ModernGraham approach to best fit within Graham’s original framework.  Eventually, Ben solidified the process to be a three-step analysis of investment opportunities:

“History shows that people who save and invest grow and prosper. ModernGraham gives us the knowledge and wisdom to help us invest wisely in order to grow our investments.”
