Advanced Value Investing
Advanced Value Investing
Building on our popular Value Investing program, the Advanced Value Investing program provides a deeper dive into the world of value investing. It explores how the practice has evolved since its inception and provides cutting-edge insights and best practices for the future of investing in a world of disruption and ever-changing trends in the market.
The practice of value investing is flexible and tactical. It uses techniques that are specific to the problem at hand and extends to investments beyond public equities. Advanced value investing emphasizes investing in compounders— companies that can reinvest capital at returns of invested capital well above the costs of capital, have large total addressable markets so that they can grow with the market and “compound” for long periods of time, and are careful in the evaluation of the risks of the business operations of the firm.
This Advanced Value Investing program delves deeply into the logic compounders, both conceptually and in practice, followed by an analysis of the disruption and changing trends in the market. Two case studies help exemplify and deepen the understanding of disruption risks, equipping the participants to understand value investing trends beyond standard diversification arguments.
Finally, the program explores slow-moving consumer trends by examining industries like healthcare, education, and leisure, leaving the participants better equipped to position their investment portfolio.

“I've been reading about value investing for decades. But after taking the online version of the Value Investing program, my thinking about value investing improved dramatically. Then I worked with the basic framework for three years. Then I took this advanced course and again, I noted a great improvement and advancement in my thinking, making me more capable of doing valuation even in the most modern industries such as online payment, online booking, etc. I recommend this course to every serious value investor.”
