Guy Spier Author and Investor
Guy Spier is a Zurich-based author and investor. Years ago, he made news by bidding $650,000 with his friend, Mohnish Pabrai, to have a charity lunch with Warren Buffett. They won the bid. And in doing so, won more than they could ever hope for.
Guy completed his MBA at the Harvard Business School, class of 1993, and holds a First Class degree in PPE (Politics, Philosophy and Economics) from Oxford University where he studied at Brasenose College with the British Prime minister David Cameron.
Following his MBA, Guy founded the Aquamarine Fund – an investment vehicle inspired by the original 1950’s Buffett partnerships, and run with a close replication of the original Buffett partnership rules. The focus is on investing for long-term capital appreciation and capital preservation. Typical investors include high net worth individuals, family offices and private banks.
His book, “The Education of a Value Investor” has almost 50,000 copies and has also been translated into Japanese, Korean, Polish, Mandarin, Hebrew, German, and Spanish.
