Every year around April thousands of investors from around the world descend on small city in midwestern United States. Of the 450 000 people in Omaha, they are there to catch words of wisdom from one special citizen: Mr Warren E. Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway Inc.
Warren Buffett is world renowned for his success in the expansion of Berkshire Hathaway, which is largely underpinned by his investment decisions. The event that attracts all the attention is the annual general meeting of Berkshire Hathaway, which this year takes place on Saturday 30 April.
Standard Bank Group’s Wealth and Investmentdivision has partnered with South African radio stations 702 and Cape Talk to cover insights from the meeting.
We sent another Warren (Warren Ingram) to Omaha to hear and see what the "Oracle of Omaha” had to say and experience this unique investor pilgrimage. Ingram is 702’s resident personal finance expert but it was between him and 702 host Bruce Whitfield as to who would attend. The decision was made by a newspaper toss. Watch this to learn more about what this involved.
