Value Invest



Value Investing

Value Investing was developed in the early Twentieth Century by Benjamin Graham and has been popularised in recent decades by the success of many investors who follow the approach, most notably Warren Buffett. It is now a well respected investment style in the US but is still a nascent sector of the investment universe elsewhere.

Numerous academic studies have shown that a disciplined value-based approach to investing in securities outperforms the market over the long term. It is under-pinned by research into behavioural investing which demonstrates both why it is so psychologically difficult to do (because it involves taking positions that are contrary to the received wisdom of the crowd) and why it is so financially rewarding when done well.


Value Invest organises the London Value Investor Conference, Value Invest New York, the Asia Value Investor Conference and the Value Investor Roundtable events. In June 2020 we will also be launching the inaugural London Quality-Growth Investor Conference.

Our first event was held in London in 2012 and has featured well-known investors including Michael Price, Howard Marks, Neil Woodford CBE, Nick Train, Jean-Marie Eveillard, Anthony Bolton, Francisco García Paramés, Will Browne, David Harding and Jonathan Ruffer, as well as other investors running both large and small funds.

Our most recent conference took place on Tuesday 14th May 2019 at the QE II Conference Centre in Westminster. See below for an overview video of the London Value Investor Conference 2019:


Value Invest also publishes two sources of information for Value Investors. ValueWire will be a new service launching in 2019 which will allow previous speakers at our conferences to send updates directly to investors in funds.

In addition, we gather material which relates to Value Investing and publish a periodic summary, called Value Investor Digest or “VID”. The formula for VID is simple: a listing of the most interesting pieces we come across, providing you a brief synopsis and a link to the original source. We will aim to publish this quarterly. If you come across anything that you think we should include in future updates, please send them to us. Subscription to both ValueWire and Value Investor Digest is free, if you would like to be included in the mailing list please sign-up.
