Keith Martin, CFA

Executive Vice President

Keith joined Evans Investment Counsel in 2000, but has been in the industry for over three decades investing his own and client assets. He is a die-hard value investor and continues to be a passionate student of Value Investing. His favorite teachers and mentors include Bob Krembil, Seth Klarman, Peter Lynch, Warren Buffett, and Ben Graham.

Keith’s most important guiding principles include protection of capital, the people he is investing with and their competence and character, and investing with a discounted price that makes the investment an intelligent risk/reward. He works hard to understand the business and its competitive edge in the marketplace, its long-term economics and growth potential, and the sustainability of earnings and capital allocation policies of management.

In the world of business, the people who are most successful are those who are doing what they love.
