Previous conferences have brought together well-known investors including Michael Price, Howard Marks, Neil Woodford CBE, Jean-Marie Eveillard, Anthony Bolton, Don Yacktman, Will Browne, David Harding and Jonathan Ruffer, as well as other investors running both large and small funds.
The 2017 Conference will have some of the world’s leading investors speaking at it and will also be a showcase for less well known and smaller firms. The speakers will provide valuable insights into the methods and approaches that have made them successful, comment on the current investment climate and offer specific investment ideas.
2016 conference overview video
Value Investing was developed in the early Twentieth Century by Benjamin Graham and has been popularised in recent decades by the success of many investors who follow the approach, most notably Warren Buffett. It is now a well respected investment style in the US but is still a nascent sector of the investment universe elsewhere.
Numerous academic studies have shown that a disciplined value-based approach to investing in securities outperforms the market over the long term. It is under-pinned by research into behavioural investing which demonstrates both why it is so psychologically difficult to do (because it involves taking positions that are contrary to the received wisdom of the crowd) and why it is so financially rewarding when done well.
