Leithner & Co. adheres strictly to the traditional “value” approach to investment pioneered by Benjamin Graham and adapted by his colleagues Warren Buffett, Thomas Knapp and Walter Schloss. Its motto is its method: to undertake investment operations that are based upon thorough research; to provide reasonable safety of principal and offer an adequate return; and to inform its shareholders regularly, fully and in plain language about these investment operations. It strives to remain a low-cost, low-risk and reasonable-and-steady-return investment vehicle.
