Rare Interview with Jean Marie Eveillard

Recently legendary value investor Jean Marie Eveillard offered a rare interview with Consuelo Mac of WealthTrack.  Eveillard's low risk and high return investment track record is unrivaled.  In this interview, Jean Marie explains how he transitioned his investment strategy from a pure deep value Benjamin Graham method of valuation to the Buffett, wide moat style of investing in 1986 because Graham opportunities went away.  Because the wide moat style of investing requires a lot more work, he had to build up at team.


Most of the team Jean Marie built up, including several analysts, his Co-Portfolio Manager (Charles deVaulx), and Director of Research (Chuck deLardemelle)  later left and went on to form International Value Advisors in 2007 and 2008.
