I will keep them a surprise to increase the excitement, so make sure to check back frequently. Or follow me on TwitterFacebook or Feedburner.

The Irving Kahn page can be found under current value investors on the top toolbar, or at the following link-http://www.valuewalk.com/irving-kahn-resource-page/. Below is a brief excerpt from the page:

 

Irving Kahn is one of the disciples of Benjamin Graham similar to Warren Buffett. He had the noteworthy opportunity of working as Graham’s teaching assistant at Columbia University Business School. Kahn has also contributed to Benjamin Graham’s bible on value investing, Security Analysis, by providing some statistical help.  Kahn’s main source of insight into the world of investment was Benjamin Graham; he was inspired so much that he named his second son Thomas Graham after Graham himself.

Kahn was born on 19th December 1905, making him the oldest American value investor and money manager currently working at the age of 105. He was among the first few applicants to take the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exam. He founded the Kahn Brothers Group Inc., formerly Kahn Brothers & Company Inc., in 1978 along with his two sons, Alan and Thomas; he is still at present the Chairman of the private investment advisory and broker-dealer firm and currently has $800 million as assets under management. The mission of the hedge-fund  is to provide its clients with superior returns on their investment by limiting their exposure to risk and avoid loss of capital. His son Thomas Graham, the president of Kahn Brothers Group Inc., articulates “My father continues to research ideas and talk to companies. One of the nice things about this business is that there’s no mandatory retirement age, and you allegedly get wiser as you get older.”
