Charlie Rose interviews Seth Klarman


Facing History and Ourselves New York Benefit Dinner.


November 11, 2011. Chelsea Piers, NYC.

Klarman is known as a value investor and is currently the chief executive and portfolio manager of the Baupost Group, a Boston-based private investment partnership.

He closely follows the investment philosophy of Benjamin Graham and is known for buying unpopular assets while they are undervalued, seeking a margin of safety and profiting off of their rise in price. Since his fund’s $27 million-dollar inception to 2008 he has realized a 20 percent compound return-on-investment and as of 2016 manages $31 billion in assets.
