Career in finance

Gotham Capital

In 1985, Greenblatt started a hedge fund, Gotham Capital, with $7 million, most of which was provided by junk-bond king Michael Milken.

Value Investors Club

He started a website called the Value Investors Club, where approved investors (through an application process) exchange value and special situation investment ideas. The website awards $5000 to the member who submits the best idea each week. He pursues a focused value and special situation investment strategy.

Magic Formula Investing

His latest book refers to an investment strategy of "Magic Formula Investing", which is a fancy name for a simple formula for determining which stocks to buy: "cheap and good companies" with a high earnings yield and a high return on capital.


Greenblatt is also famous for his contributions to education in New York City. In 2002, he donated $2.5 million to P.S. 65Q, a public elementary school in the borough of Harlem, whose students come largely from the neighborhood's South American and South Asian immigrant communities. This investment, equal to about $1,000 per student per year over five years, helped P.S. 65Q to go from a struggling school to an urban success story almost overnight. In 2006, Greenblatt also helped start the Harlem Success Charter School, an elementary school in the city's historically African American neighborhood. [ [ How Is a Hedge Fund Like a School?] ".
