Guy Spier presented his in-depth investment thesis on investing in Europe in the face of crisis and uncertainty at European Investing Summit 2012.

The first live session at EIS 2012 was led by Guy Spier, Chief Executive Officer, Aquamarine Capital.

About the session: Guy Spier will frame the eurocrisis in historical perspective, provide a sense of how investors have reacted to past crises and uncertainties, what actions have led to poor or superior investment results, and address behavioral biases that lead investors to follow the herd during situations of uncertainty and crisis. You’ll end up with an appreciation of the context for the ongoing crisis and the pitfalls to avoid in order to help you maintain perspective and a long-term orientation. Guy will also elaborate on the views expressed in the recent Times of London editorial he co-authored with Mohnish Pabrai, entitled “The Motown way to get Greece motoring.” Guy will also reveal which European investment opportunities he finds most compelling.
