It isn’t often that a very successful hedge fund manager with a winning strategy closes up shop, but that is exactly what this week’s Great Investor guest did in 1995. It’s equally unusual to get back in the business more than a decade later with a dramatically altered strategy. Joel Greenblatt of the Gotham Funds will explain his big change in portfolio strategy, from a very concentrated approach to broad diversification.

Greenblatt mentions all his best selling books, including You Can Be a Stock Market GeniusThe Big Secret for the Small Investor: A New Route to Long-Term Investment SuccessYou Can Be a Stock Market Genius: Uncover the Secret Hiding Places of Stock Market Profits.

In 1995, after ten years of running the extremely concentrated hedge fund, Gotham Capital, Great Investor Joel Greenblatt and his co-manager decided to give the money back to outside investors and take it private. In addition to continuing to run the fund, what else did Greenblatt do with his time? As it turns out, plenty!
