TIP120: The Dhandho Investor w/ Mohnish Pabrai



In this episode, Preston and Stig talk to one of the most respected investors implementing the Buffett-Graham approach.  Mohnish Pabrai has been running his Pabrai Funds since 2000 and since that time his fund has produced triple digit returns.

Mohnish has become quite famous in the investment world because he attributes his success to being a cloner of Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger.  In an effort to achieve similar results to Berkshire Hathaway, Mohnish has dedicated his professional life to understanding the more obscure elements to their success.  He has modeled his Pabrai Funds after the same company structure that Buffett used when he ran Buffett Partnership Ltd.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How Mohnish accumulated business knowledge from the age of 11
  • Why Mohnish is one of the very best and respected investors in the value investing community
  • What special advantages people like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett had to become so successful
  • How Mohnish set up and ran a business like Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger
  • Why investing is not a team sport
