Investment Books (Part 1)


Since i Capital started in 1989, it has encouraged serious investing among its subscribers. It has also advised that there is no short cut to successful investing. Key factors like patience, discipline and the willingness to acquire the skills are important.

Due to our commitment to serious investing and our regular reminders that there is no short cut to success, our subscribers have often asked us what investment books we would suggest that would help them to improve their investing skills and knowledge. To assist them in their investing journeys, i Capital has compiled this list of investment books.

As a believer in value investing, our suggested list inevitably contains many books on value investing. We would expand this list as time goes by. As part of our long-held philosophy in not just catching fishes but also to teach our subscribers how to fish, we produce below a list of books that we have found to be useful.

Security Analysis
   by Benjamin Graham, David Dodd
   Published by McGraw-Hill

There are 5 editions to this classic. Different people like different editions. The 5th edition is the latest but it contains many modifications by the 3 writers who subsequently continued with the book. Many see this book as the ‘bible’ of value investing but it is a thick book and is full of accounting stuff. Reading it can be very heavy going, unless one is familiar with accounting but it is worth the effort.

The Intelligent Investor
   by Benjamin Graham
   Published by Harper & Row

Written by the same author, this book is less technical than Security Analysis but is no less useful. If an investor can master these two books, he or she would have already covered a big part of what value investing is all about. The book below touches on Graham's investment philosophy and his life.
