Seth Klarman interview by Charlie Rose

Seth Klarman is one of the smartest value investors in the world. He is the President of The Baupost Group, a Boston hedge fund with AUM in excess of $22 Billion. In 1991 he wrote the book Margin of Safety, Risk Averse Investing Strategies for the Thoughtful Investor. If you haven´t read it, I strongly suggest you do. Unfortunately it is out of print and the book sells for more than $1,000. A pdf version of the book can be found here.

Seth Klarman is not a big fan of interviews so this long interview with Charlie Rose is extremely valuable. Enjoy!

A Conversation with Charlie Munger

Charlie Munger is Warren Buffett´s partner since 1959. He is vice-president of Berkshire Hathaway, chairman of Wesco Financial Corporation, a lawyer and a philanthropist.

Warren Buffett used to to refer to Munger in his early letters to partners in the 60´s as his “West Coast philosopher” friend. Charlie Munger is a broad thinker, has a multidisciplinary approach to problem solving and life and certainly is one of a kind.

In this video, Charlie Munger has fantastic two-hour long conversation with CNBC news anchor Becky Quick at the University of Michigan, his alma mater, in 2010. Enjoy!
