Value investors, I suspect, are born that way. It takes a particular type of person to be willing to stand out from the crowd, focus on the long term, and constantly be hunting for bargains. This week's guest on the podcast is precisely one of those people; Garry Laurence, Portfolio Manager of Perpetual Investments's Global Shares Fund. Garry has been managing the Global Shares fund since inception in 2011 and was co-portfolio manager of the Asian Shares fund prior to that. In this week's episode, we'll discuss why value investing has struggled in recent years, the worst investment he ever made and what he learned from it, and one underappreciated attribute to look for when assessing an investment.
