California resident Krishen Iyer has accumulated years of experience as a successful entrepreneur. Previously serving as the CEO of Iyer Health Shield, he founded a real estate firm in Fresno, where he currently works as a real estate developer. An avid reader in his leisure time, Krishen Iyer enjoys material authored by Warren Buffet.
A famed investor and philanthropist, Warren Buffett is one of the richest men in the world. Born in Nebraska in 1930, Buffett founded Buffett Partnership Ltd. in 1956, and took control of Berkshire Hathaway less than ten years later. Buffet led the firm with an investing style that included the purchase of holdings in the entertainment, insurance, energy, and consumables sectors.
The Intelligent Investor, a book first published in 1949, greatly influenced Buffett’s investing and business philosophy. The book was written by Benjamin Graham, an investing expert who also served as a mentor to Buffet.
In addition to teaching various methods of investment safety, Graham taught a model of investing known as value investing. Value investing involves investing in stocks that are undervalued by the market. These stock prices are often deflated due to market overreactions, and can provide high returns when purchased with a long-term investment outlook.
