Types of investor

Benjamin Graham in the ‘Intelligent Investor’ describes two types of investor. The two types are a Defensive Value Investor and an Enterprising Value Investor. Studio 61 Wealth Management uses the same definitions. We will sometimes use ‘entrepreneurial’ value investor instead of enterprising value investor. Both these terms have the same intended meaning. The types of investor are referred to in all the individual securities analyses, which are downloadable from the shop.

Defensive value investor

  • The defensive investor will place his chief emphasis on the avoidance of serious mistakes or losses. His second aim will be freedom from effort, annoyance and the need for making frequent decisions.
  • The reports in the research section will identify those securities, which will meet the aims of the defensive value investor

Entrepreneurial value investor

  • The entrepreneurial or ‘enterprising’ value investor is willing to devote time care and attention to the selection of securities that are both sound and more attractive than average.
  • The reports will give an indication to an entrepreneurial value investor of attractive securities based on valuation. There is specific commentary for entrepreneurial value investors.
  • Entrepreneurial value investors will find research on individual securities specifically for this type of investor. Entrepreneurial value investors can buy individual reports or access all reports through membership. Please click the appropriate button below.
