Understanding the World’s Greatest Investors

Frederik Vanhaverbeke

With Frederik Vanhaverbeke, Author – Excess Returns: A Comparative Study of the World’s Greatest Investors

It is possible to beat the market! Taking this as a starting point, Frederik’s book – Excess Returns – sets out to explore how exactly the most famous investors in the world have done it, year after year, sometimes by huge margins.

Excess Returns is not a superficial survey of what investors have said about what they do. Rather, Frederik applies a forensic analysis to hundreds of books, articles, letters and speeches made by dozens of top investors over the last century and synthesizes his findings into a definitive blueprint of how exactly these investment legends have gone about their work.

Learn of the striking similarities in the craft of great investors, crucial subtleties in their methods that are ignored by many, and the unconscious errors investors commonly make and how these are counter to successful investing.
