The Origins of 80/20 Investors
We have studied the track records of the leading Superinvestors in history. Their strategies and asset classes differed, but they all had something in common. They always operated from a position of financial strength and considered the risks first. They maintained a personal edge by simply being more efficient and smarter about their investment approach and decision making. The results: Superior performance and better risk management.
The term “Superinvestors” originated from a speech given by Warren Buffett at Columbia University on May 17, 1984. In his speech he promoted value investing and honoring his Professor and mentor Benjamin Graham. Furthermore, he challenged the idea that equity markets are efficient by outlining Graham’s investment principles and showcasing nine successful investment managers generating long-term returns above the market index. Their Credo was: “look for value with significant margin of safety relative to price”
Buffett demonstrated that all 9 managers pursued different investment tactics and investment strategies with completely different investments – yet they would follow the same intellectual framework laid down by Benjamin Graham who himself learned from previous investors. In their investment approach, Superinvestors make sure the odds are in their favor before they make investment decisions. They intuitively utilized the 80/20 Principle within their investment approach by having a “Margin of Safety” and staying within their own “Circle of Competence.” In short, all Superinvestors are 80/20 Investors!
