The 10th Annual Value Investing Congress has posted some of the speakers that will participate at this year’s event, scheduled for September 8 – 9 in New York City, and even though the full list isn’t yet available (or finalized, most likely) the lineup is already impressive. Founded by Schwartz Tilson Information in 2004, the Value Investing Congress is meant to help people better understand value investing in the tradition of Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett, and it consistently brings together the world’s best investors to share their insights. Also see our coverage of Ira Sohn Conference 2014 and last year’s Value Investing Congress Speaker Presentations.
Leon Cooperman, Alexander Roepers, Carson Block among top speakers
Some of the big names include Leon Cooperman, former Goldman Sachs general partner and Goldman Sachs Asset Management CEO who left to found Omega Advisors; Alexander Roepers, president and founder of global equity hedge fund Atlantic Investment Management with $2.3 billion AUM and a long history of successful activism; Carson Block, founder of short selling firm Muddy Waters Research whose independent research has resulted in more than $8 billion in downward market cap adjustments; and Whitney Tilson, the founder and managing director of value-oriented Kase Capital and chairman emeritus of the Value Investing Congress.
Other speakers include Kerrisdale Capital Management managing partner Sahm Adrangi, SC Fundamental partner David Hurwitz, Starboard Value CEO and CIO Jeffrey C. Smith, Akanthos Capital Management founder Michael Kao, and Eriksen Capital Management founder Tim Eriksen.
Value Investing Congress workshop gives attendees a chance to ask questions and interact with speakers
In addition to the two-day series of talks, the Value Investing Congress will hold a full-day practical workshop on September 7 led by Whitney Tilson, Tim Eriksen, Chris Mayer of Agora Financial, and Marcelo Lima of Heller House that show how leading value investors approach fundamental analysis, estimate intrinsic value, identify value traps and more, using current examples so that attendees can both improve their own value investing toolkit and leave with some actionable ideas.
