9780071819329: The Warren Buffett Philosophy of Investment: How a Combination of Value Investing and Smart Acquisitions Drives Extraordinary Success

See the world’s #1 investor like never before—and learn how you can replicate his success

Many books have been written about Warren Buffett’s value-investing strategy, and volumes more have been written about becoming a top-tier value investor. Even so, no one can touch the success Warren Buffett has achieved. Why? In this revealing examination of Buffett’s success, practitioner, professor, and bestselling author ?lena Chirkova proposes the key to replicating his achievements is found in his acquisition practices as well as his investment strategy.

In The Warren Buffett Philosophy of Investment, she looks at the man in full to piece together the framework leading to his unmatched wealth-generating prowess. The cornerstone of her study goes beyond investment theory to show Buffett’s core wealth drivers are his philosophies behind Berkshire Hathaway. From his decision to create a joint stock company (instead of a mutual fund) to his hands-off policy with acquired companies to making himself a brand-name of mergers and acquisitions—she illustrates an intimate portrayal of Buffett operating behind the scenes by piecing together his career with scholarly diligence and scrutiny. Even well-read Buffett followers gain fresh insight into the man by discovering:

  • Where his divergence from the principals of Ben Graham and Philip Fisher make him a superior investor
  • Why his unorthodox perspective on the financial markets keep him ahead of the curve
  • How his vision of risk, interpretation of volatility, and scepticism about investing in technology companies are interconnected
  • What he sees as the critical problems of corporate finance

Additionally, readers are treated to extraordinary coverage of how Buffett strategically set up Berkshire Hathaway to suit his personal long-term investment strategy and provide almost cost-free leverage. See how Buffett’s singular acquisition tactics and portfolio investments earned Berkshire Hathaway the distinction as “the right home for the right people,” which gives him access to deals unobtainable by other companies and investors.

You’re only investing with half a strategy until you take your value investing to the next level with The Warren Buffett Philosophy of Investment.

Product Description:

Revealed! The secret behind Warren Buffett’s 20% return rate over 60 YEARS

The Warren Buffett Philosophy of Investment reveals—for the first time—how the world’s #1 investor combines his trademark value investing with a unique approach to mergers and acquisitions.

The huge interest in Warren Buffett stems from the challenge to understand his history of earning more than 20% on capital annually during the last 60 years. Modern financial theory does not allow for this degree of success, nor has anyone else been able to replicate it.

The book argues that Buffett's secret can be explained only if one looks beyond the theory of investing. The author sees the major drivers of his success as the transformation of Mr. Buffett's name into a super-brand of mergers and acquisitions, as well as his hands-off policy with respect to the acquired companies. As a result, Buffett enjoys numerous opportunities to buy first-class companies at moderate prices and keeps the existing good managers responsible for further value creation.

?lena Chirkova is a professor of finance in the Higher School for Economics in Moscow and was previously Head of Corporate finance for Deloitte’s office in Russia.
