Podcast Review | Tom Gayner on The Knowledge Project

Tom Gayner and Markel are often spoken about in the same context of Warren Buffett and Berkshire Hathway, and Shane Parrish from The Knowledge Project does an excellent job of unpacking why.  

Gayner is not only humble but a deep thinker. While he talks through his journey to becoming CEO of Markel Corporation and some of his lucky breaks, he provides some valuable insights into some of the major economic events over the last two decades. Throughout the podcast he also covers a wide range of topics from making mistakes and the difference between commission and omission, to his debt curfew theory and the impact of leverage. You will get a true sense of how Gayner thinks long term and as he puts it is “always there to answer the bell for the next round of the fight”.
