Frank Martin has practiced absolute return value investing for over 50 years and has a diverse background in the financial services industry.
He founded the predecessor entity to his investment management firm, Martin Capital Management (MCM), only months before the Crash of 1987.
He holds a B.A. in Investment Management from Northwestern University, an MBA with honors from Indiana University at South Bend, and is a Chartered Financial Analyst®. Throughout his career he has been active on public and private corporation boards as well as those of 501(c)(3) organizations; he believes that “to whom much is given, much is expected in return” and attempts to live life and manage wealth with reference to the Golden Rule.
A voracious reader and student of history, Frank believes in the importance of being a “lifelong learning machine.” He is also a prolific writer and the author of two investment books, Speculative Contagion and A Decade of Delusion.
This blog catalogues Frank’s perspective on subjects related to the discipline of investing. His 30,000-foot view examines wealth management in the context of human behavior—a complement to the pragmatic, short-term, and money-centric model that drives much investor activity today.
