Investing books

  • The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham

It might have been published in 1949, but many still consider The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham as the best book about value investing, and one of the most influential books on investing in general. ‘Value investing’, for those who haven’t heard of it, is a strategy that targets undervalued shares of companies that have the capability to perform well in the future. In this book, Graham explains the importance of determining value, focusing on the long term, and not participating in short-term market booms and busts.

  • The Psychology of Money by Morgan Housel

A fast-paced, engaging read, The Psychology of Money by behavioural finance expert Morgan Housel explores the complex relationship that we have with money, using personal stories and real-life examples. It can be a great read for those who want to get a better understanding of their money-related biases, and ultimately make well-informed decisions.

  • The Margin of Safety by Seth Klarman

US billionaire investor Seth Klarman shares detailed insights into how to minimise investment risk and maximise returns, including key principles that everyone can apply. The Margin of Safety was originally published in 1991, but it’s still as relevant as the first day it hit the shelves.

  • Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits by Philip A. Fisher

Another classic, Common Stocks and Uncommon Profits is a 1958 book about how to be successful when investing in shares for the long run. There are quite a few jewels to be found in its pages – not surprising given Fisher’s reputation as one of the most influential investors in the history of the share market.

  • The Little Book of Common Sense Investing by John C. Bogle

Lastly, a ‘little book’ on index funds. Vanguard Group founder John C. Bogle shares his tips on how to make index fund investing work for your needs and goals. The overarching message is: buy and hold for the long term, at a very low cost, a mutual fund that tracks a broad share market index. But of course, there’s a lot more to be learned from this book. New chapters have been added since the first edition, expanding on the principles of asset allocation and retirement investing.
