I had the pleasure of speaking with Peter Mantas, general partner of Toronto-based Logos LP, last week.

Peter discussed his background and investment approach at Logos LP, an investment fund he started with Matthew Castel in order to implement the timeless investment principles they had always followed on behalf of their own families.

Peter and Matthew invoke Charlie Munger in describing their approach:

“The investment game always involves considering both quality and price, and the trick is to get more quality than you pay for in price. It’s just that simple.”

Enjoy the conversation:
