Data, valuation and fundamentals driven

I've been a value investor since 2007 after my first 100% loss. Now my investment mantra is VALUATION, VALUATION, VALUATION.

Sign up below and I'll send you a set of investment checklists to start. I also spill my guts on everything I learn throughout my valuation and investing journey.

Our commitment and core values to you

Our core values that define our culture, brand and business strategy.

Customers = house guests
Each interaction is a relationship. Every customer, reader or visitor is our house guest. We will treat you with the respect and honor we give to our own house guests.
Be honest + transparent
We openly admit and share our values, learnings, mistakes and the way we run our business. We do not sell anything that we do not use ourselves.
People > money
We believe that revenue is a result of how we connect with you. We do not seek short term sales or "quick" marketing tactics. Our goal is to build and serve a community of like minded investors.
Pursue growth & learning
We try everyday to learn and improve our life, lives around us, our thinking, relationships, investing skills, products, customer service and internal culture.

Our mission and story

Sure we want old school value to be the defacto value investing platform, but here's a better story

old school value story and mission

1,000 children sponsorship mission

Jae here.

This could be a typical jargon filled fluff piece of what we do, and how we are better than the competition, but at Old School Value, it's not about us.

The truth is that we won't exist without our precious insiders and readers - you.

Just as how we depend on you, a lot of people depend on others for support.

That's why our mission is to love God, love people and serve the world. We have a crazy goal of sponsoring 1,000 children through Compassion International and we have a long way to go, but we are getting there one child at a time.

old school value beginnings

Back to how it started

The short version is that my first "investment" was in variable life insurance. I wised up later and forfeited the $5,000 I put in.

I realized nobody cares about my finances as much as I did. That day, I decided to take control of my finances.

Never having studied finance, investing, economics, business or programming in my education, it was an uphill battle.

Lessons from Ben Graham, Warrren Buffett, Bruce Greenwald, Joel Greenblatt, Seth Klarman, Howard Marks and countless other investors helped with where I am now.

Also, we try harder.

Having struggled from the bottom, my goal is to always spill my guts with you on what I'm continually learning.
