Beginner’s Guide to Value Investing: The Investor’s Handbook

Investor’s Handbook: Beginner’s Guide to Value Investing by SG Investor

In the Investor’s Handbook, it sets out as a beginner’s guide to value investing. With that in mind, we have compiled the basic technicalities and concepts required in giving investors a firm foundation when starting their investing journey.

Initially, this handbook was created for the University’s student-led fund: UCL Bloomsbury Capital. With the positive reviews and feedback, Direk and myself have decided to share it here for all other value investor’s embarking on this journey.

The Handbook can be found below and free to be downloaded via Scribd.

I developed my passion for investment management especially equity research at a relatively young age. My investment journey began when I was 20, at a point in time where markets were still recovering from the Global Financial Crisis. My portfolio started from money I saved over the past years and through working during the holidays. I was fortunate to have a good friend with common investing mentality to began my journey towards value investing. To date, we still research and invest in companies together, discussing valuations and potential risks of a company. To date, I manage a fund with a value investing style. Positions are decided upon via a bottom-up approach or smart speculation (a term I came up with when buying a stock for quick profit due to a mismatch in prices in the market due to takeovers/selling of a subsidiary or associate). Apart from managing my own portfolio, I enjoy sharing my research with family and friends, seeking their opinions and views towards the stock. Reading Economics in London, I constantly keep up with the financial news in Singapore & Hong Kong. Despite my busy schedule, it has not stopped me from enjoying other aspects of life. I enjoy a variety of activities in whatever free time I may have – endurance running, marathons, traveling, fine dining, whiskey appreciation, fashion. Lastly, I enjoy meeting new people, discussing ideas and gaining new perspectives towards issues in the world.
