Value Vanquishes the Bear

Traders Magazine, July 2002

Kathryn M. Welling

Laurence B. Siegel, director of investment policy research at the Ford Foundation, has great investment instincts. But he knows too much to follow them blindly, preferring instead to temper instinct with disciplines developed over a lifetime of experience in delving deeply into the best investment research available. Especially the quantitative stuff. A good bit of which Larry, back when he served as managing director of Ibbotson Associates, which he helped to establish in 1979, did much to put on the map. But Larry isn't a head-in-the-clouds intellectual, either - something he can prove equally by quoting early rap song lyrics or by pointing to his service as chairman of the investment committee of the Trust for Civil Society in Central and Eastern Europe. He is, in short, precisely the sort of fellow you'd expect to keep his head - and maintain a long-term perspective - even amid volatile markets. Which is exactly what he's doing. -KMW
