The Fairholme Fund’s Great Investor Bruce Berkowitz is known for his investment acumen, but he is also making waves in other areas with his charitable arm, the Fairholme Foundation. We asked him about its latest project, building an art museum on his home turf of Miami. Watch the related WEALTHTRACK episode.
This week we have a rare interview with Bruce Berkowitz of The Fairholme Fund. Launched at the height of the tech bubble in late 1999, The Fairholme Fund has been the top performer in Morningstar’s Large Value category since inception, delivering 13% annualized returns and beating its nearest competitor by a margin of 2.4% points a year. Berkowitz believes in “ignoring the crowd”. He’ll explain why nearly 80% of his portfolio is in four financial stocks shunned by most investors.
“Ignore the crowd” is the motto of this week’s Great Investor guest and Fairholme Fund’s Bruce Berkowitz. Berkowitz, who rarely sits for television interviews, said on WEALTHTRACK that he had his work cut out for himself, defending Fairholme Fund’s losing record last year.
