Does character matter in investing? Dr. George Athanassakos’ article, titled, “Successful value investors weigh in on the importance of character", published in The Globe and Mail (Report on Business), p.B7, summarizes interviews with successful value investors and finds that success in investing is not a matter of IQ.

The article also appeared in Globe Investor Magazine Online, under the title, “Inside the minds of successful value investors”. View PDF
