We're 10 years later now and it's  time to use your calculator! ;-)

Cheers!

Sad indeed. Lesson learned about how we can sometimes be over-optimistic about value investors. And how FFH team was too scared about macro stuff for too long.

Interesting. Thanks for following up on this Partner24. Wisdom of the crowd was wrong in 2009. If the same poll was conducted today, probably everyone would say either <10% or 11-15%. Wonder if we would all the wrong again....hopefully.

Feel free to start a new 10 year return poll and we can see the results in 10 years.

I would be willing to bet real money that Fairfax return will be below 15% annual for next 10 years.

What are the odds you are offering?

Regarding FFH, I do not keep myself informed about it anymore, so I will not start a new poll. But feel free to do so.

Cheers!
