I think of many of best investors of the past 100 years; people who know how to compound their wealth year after year.

The real-world returns these investors have generated over long periods of time is nothing short of extraordinary.

  • Warren Buffett:  19% CAGR over 50 years
  • Seth Klarman:  ~20% CAGR over 34 years
  • Benjamin Graham:  ~20% CAGR over 20 years
  • Peter Lynch:  29% CAGR over 13 years
  • Joel Greenblatt:  48% CAGR over 10 year

Think about the amazing wealth creation of these investors…  Compounding at 20% a year means doubling your wealth in under 4 years.

Most of the above super investors have put a great emphasis on investing for the long-run.  Long-term thinking helps to explain how these investors have been able to generate tremendous returns over decades.
