Exclusive Interview with Tom Russo
« on: October 24, 2011, 11:17:53 AM »
Thought you guys would be interested. I conducted an interview with Tom Russo (about 14 pages of text), and just posted it. He was one of the first global value investors (great 25+ yr track record)-http://www.valuewalk.com/interviews/exclusive-interview-famous-investor-tom-russo/ http://www.valuewalk.com/interviews/exclusive-interview-famous-investor-tom-russo/

Thanks! It was mostly a monologue that he told me to put into an interview format. I had a lot more questions I wanted to ask him.

Btw- he is a super nice guy.

Thanks Jacob.

There was also a wealthtrack interview with Tom Russo a few weeks ago. Fascinating to see different investing styles. Holding Nestle since 1987 through all twists and turns - that takes patience !

Great stuff.

I particularly enjoyed the "capacity to suffer" concept. A very valuable trait to find and important one shared by some of the great investors. Very important in the insurance business as well!

No idea, considering he manages $6billion (and has a fantastic track record) he is pretty unknown even in the value circles.

He manages money with Gardner, Russo & Gardner.  They manage both separate accounts and some pooled money.  The firm is based in Lancaster, PA.
