The South African Value Investor Conference has been created and organized by the Warren Buffett expert and author Robert P. Miles and is modelled on his very successful events in the USA, Australia and Europe. Due to the huge success of the first Value Investor Conference that was hosted in Cape Town on 26 October 2007, Robert Miles has accepted Rian Maartens’ (Chairman & Ceo of Ipic Group) invitation to make this an annual event in South Africa. It is with great pleasure that we can announce that Ipic Media & Education will be co-hosting the 2nd South African Value Investor Conference on 29 October 2008 in Johannesberg and on 31 October 2008 in Cape Town with Miles.

The purpose of the conference is to showcase and introduce world-class investors and managers from South Africa and the USA, who manage their companies with the same skill and passion as many of the Warren Buffett managers, to both private investors as well as professional money managers. Robert P. Miles has carefully selected fund managers, authors and investment experts, who he believes would make excellent CIO’s of Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Inc, to present at the conference. We highly recommend this conference to anyone interested in understanding the process of investing and making money using the advice of some of the world’s best investors.

 
   
 
   

Value investing is an investment paradigm that derives from the ideas on investment and speculation that Ben Graham & David Dodd set forth in their 1934 text Security Analysis. Although value investing has taken many forms since its inception, it generally involves buying securities whose shares appear underpriced by some form(s) of fundamental analysis.
