I can only tell you that the secret has been out for 50 years, ever since Ben Graham and Dave Dodd wrote Security Analysis, yet I have seen no trend toward value investing in the 35 years I’ve practiced it. There seems to be some perverse human characteristic that likes to make easy things difficult.

Welcome

Welcome to my website. Over the 2006-2012 period I developed various quantitative value investing strategies. Starting early 2011 the initial strategy is being used within CAPITA, a global equity fund managed together with Christophe De Wit (Director - Saffelberg Investments) which in the upcoming months will be transformed into CAPITA Global Quant Value Fund managed by CAPITA Asset Management. A second strategy will be implemented within the Quant Asia Fund managed by Grit Capital. Grit Capital is currently started up by Arthur van der Linden (Head of M&A - RMA Group - Thailand). Arthur holds an MBA in value investing from Columbia University. A third and at the same time global quantitative value strategy, provisionally named Diversified Global Quant Value, was devised within the scope of the Good Money project by Bart Van Coppenolle (CEO - Right Brain Interface). In the next few months and years I will work towards the further development of these projects into valuable value funds, each one tuned to the intended target audience. The philosophy underlying the three value strategies is invariably based on Benjamin Graham’s investment philosophy. I gladly refer to the CAPITA Global Quant Value Fund presentation and the corresponding explanations on my blog for more information concerning this investment philosophy and the quantitative value strategy (with matching results) within the CAPITA Global Quant Value Fund. In particular within the scope of the Diversified Global Quant Value strategy I’m definitely looking for an exclusive institutional partner.
