Podcast Review | Lunch with Warren Buffett, Working for Berkshire Hathaway, and the Future of Investments with Ted Weschler

Lunch With Warren Buffett, Working for Berkshire Hathaway, and the Future of Investments With Ted Weschler | I Am Home Podcast

"This podcast is well worth a listen, particularly given its guest, Ted Weschler, rarely gives access to the public."

Teds notoriety for many is derived from his unbelievable retirement account return, wherein he turned $70,000 (USD) in 1989, into $246.4 million (USD) in 2018. This return that dwarfs what the S&P 500 Index did over the same period, is even more remarkable given his personal account suffered a 52% loss in 1990 when two of his core holdings (Continental Health Affiliates stock and Intelogic Trace bonds), suffered 67% and 55% drawdowns respectively.

The podcast however discusses the interesting story of how he came to work as one of the very few Portfolio Managers at Berkshire Hathaway, involving a lunch with Warren Buffett at the (since closed) Omaha steakhouse Piccolo’s, how he got into Investment Management and what his day to day life is like.
