Sam Zell’s Insights On Investing

Sam Zell on key tenets of his investing philosophy: “I philosophically believe that if you can’t delineate your idea in one or two sentences, it’s not worth doing … simplicity is critical.”

Sam Zell on what has allowed him to be successful: “The definition of a great investor is someone who starts by understanding the downside. You must make the judgment in advance as to how much downside risk you are willing to take. I knew that I could always survive the good days, but the critical element is to be able to survive when the market isn’t doing well or the investment isn’t performing. I always focus on how much exposure I am taking.” (credit to Columbia Business School)
