Readers often e-mail me to ask how they can find places to network with other value investors. There are two upcoming events that each provide an excellent forum to learn from and network with other like-minded investors.
The Second Annual Valuespaña 2016 will be held in Madrid on April 7th & 8th at the Hotel Villa Real. Last year’s conference was the first of its kind in Spain and presented investors and allocators from around the world with a forum to discuss their investment process and share actionable ideas. Speakers this year include: Daniel Abrahams (Alfreton Capital), Gianluca Ferrari (Shareholder Value Management), David Kessler (Robotti & Company Advisors), Gary Channon (Phoenix AMP), Gareth Brown (Forager Funds), Steven Wood (Greenwood Investors), Alvaro Guzmán de Lázaro (AzValor) and many more.
A second event that has a history of bringing together high quality speakers, investors and allocators is The Ben Graham Centre’s Value Investing Conference. The 2016 conference will be held on April 13th at the Fairmont Royal York in Downtown Toronto, Canada. Speakers this year include: Charles Brandes (Brandes Investment Partners), Peter Kauffman (Glenair, Inc.), Richard Rooney (Burgundy Asset Management), Kim Shannon (Sionna Investment Managers), Elizabeth Lilly (GAMCO), Irwin Rotenberg (Lissom Investment Management), Chuck Akre (Akre Capital) and many more.
Make sure to drop me a note if you plan to attend either conference so we can meet in person or catch-up!
