"The interesting people read Grant's."--a statement of fact from a friendly reader.
Our editorial mission is to see the present more clearly and to squint into the future more imaginatively. Twenty-four times a year, we strive to uncover good ideas and to expose bad ones. To identify the next important event in markets is the main prize. We try hard to win it, and sometimes—as with the 2008 crash in mortgages or the 2009 recovery in credit or the 2012-13 upturn in house prices—we succeed.
In every 12-page issue, we present long and short investment candidates in a range of asset classes--equities, fixed income and real-estate to name a few—as well as astute observations on interest rates, monetary policy, the credit markets and currencies. All of this we frame in the context of financial history and express in jargon-free English.
Recent issues of Grant’s have featured interest income (that rare and precious commodity!), the radical policies of the world’s central banks and the “man with the perfect resumé.” Do you care to know who that man is? About where an income-seeking investor may earn a substantial yield and still sleep through the night? About why central banks pose a clear and present danger to your financial well-being?
The Financial Times columnist John Authers, reviewing the 2008 collection of Grant’s articles entitled “Mr. Market Miscalculates,” called our prescience concerning the-then unfolding financial crisis “uncanny.” And he asked, “If Grant could see what was happening this clearly, and warn of it in a well-circulated publication, how did the world’s financial regulators fail to avert the crisis before it became deadly, and how did the rest of us continue to make the irrational investing decisions that make Mr. Market behave the way he does?”
Please help yourself to the free issues provided. You will notice that, while many financial publications these days write down to their readers, we write up. Reading Grant’s—really reading it—you will find you ask better questions, read better books, and keep company with a better class of investment.
