Benjamin Graham's Lasting Legacy

Benjamin Graham is known as the Father of Value Investing, and this video from the Heilbrunn Center for Graham and Dodd Investing at Columbia Business School offers a great look into both Graham the investor and Graham the person.

The short film includes interviews with former students, friends, family, and colleagues, including Warren Buffett, Irving Kahn, and Graham’s son, Buz. Among the topics: Graham’s conservative deep value approach and focus on fundamentals, overall philosophy on making money, and patient mindset.
