He is regarded as a highly knowledgeable investor in various stock, bond, and commodity markets. Grantham started one of the world's first index funds in the early 1970s.

Investing Philosophy

Grantham has built much of his investing reputation over his long career by correctly identifying speculative market "bubbles" as they were happening and steering clients' assets clear of impending crashes. Grantham avoided investing in Japanese equities and real estate in the late eighties, as well as technology stocks during the internet bubble in the late nineties.

Most recently, Grantham began warning about the overvaluation of equity and credit markets in 2006, well before the start of the present crisis.
