Bill Achman Interview

This is a great interview with Ackman. He has several publically traded vehicles that allow retail investors to gain exposure to his exceptional skill set. He is undoubtedly one of the legends in the investing world. 

Steve Clapham and I had a little chat about his miniseries on value investing, with Tobias Carlisle of The Acquirers Multiple and Mark Walker of Tollymore Investment Partners.

Supposed to be only 5 minutes but Steve and I ran a bit over...

Steve's conversation with Tobias came out today, so watch it if you haven't gotten the chance. And stay tuned for his interview with Mark Walker, which airs tomorrow.
