Later this month, on January 22, I will be interviewing OakTree Capital’s Howard Marks — a mini Live and in person MiB — at the Seattle CFA Society’s annual dinner:
Here are the details:
CFA Society Seattle is pleased to announce that Howard Marks, CFA, CIC & Chairman, Oaktree Capital Management will serve as keynote speaker to the 2015 Economic Forecast Dinner on January 22, 2015 at the Sheraton Seattle Hotel.
Since the formation of Oaktree Capital Management in 1995, Howard Marks has been responsible for ensuring the firm’s adherence to its core investment philosophy, communicating closely with clients concerning products and strategies, and managing the firm.
Well-known for his insightful assessments of market opportunity and risk, in 2011 Marks captured in his series of investment memos to clients in a book called The Most Important Thing.
In 2013, he updated these insights in The Most Important Thing Illuminated: Uncommon Sense for the Thoughtful Investor. Both books have been praised by thought leaders including Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett: “When I see memos from Howard Marks in my mail, they’re the first thing I open and read. I always learn something, and that goes double for his books.”
Hope to see you there!
