The book is currently being edited and is heading for an autumn/winter release. I recently finished reading the latest draft and think that Hh Intelligence readers will find a lot to enjoy – it’s particularly good for any MoneyWeek or Investors Chronicle readers among you, revealing a top modern investor’s methodology with remarkable honesty and detail.
Jeroen Bos is a deep value investor. What does that mean? Well, put simply, it just means finding high-potential shares at incredible discounts – discounts so severe, in fact, that even in a worst-case scenario, you have bought their assets for less than they’re worth.
That’s right. There are shares out there – a number of them; unloved; ignored; but with objective track records and balance sheets that don’t lie – which are trading at a discount to what they are actually, obviously worth. You could buy them, close them, pay off all their debts and still have more money than you started with.
It is, as Jeroen says, like buying a £50 note for £20. And if they come good, the upside is fairly endless.
Naturally finding such shares is not as easy as hitting up Google. But you’d be surprised how straightforward it can be. The utmost requirement, really, is patience. For the rest, Jeroen reveals absolutely everything you need. He’s happy to do this because he himself learnt from the equally candid work of Benjamin Graham, particularly his masterpiece The Intelligent Investor.
And how about an exclusive sneak peek of the first chapter almost six months before the book comes out? We hope to post it first thing next week – do check back in on Harriman Intelligence or follow us over on Twitter where we’re @harrimanhouse.
