We had the pleasure of meeting with Arnold Van Den Berg, chairman and chief executive officer of Century Management, based in Austin, for a conversation about his investment approach and path as an investor. Arnold argues persuasively for a simple, disciplined approach to investing. His remarkable story inspires and challenges us to become better in every facet of life.
Arnold Van Den Berg founded Century Management in 1974. He has no formal college education. It is through self-study, dedication, and more than forty-five years of industry experience that Arnold has gained deep market knowledge. Prior to starting Century Management, he worked as a financial advisor/consultant for Capital Securities and John Hancock Insurance.
Watch an excerpt of our exclusive interview. In this segment, Arnold asserts, “You need to be intelligent, not bright.”
