Seth Klarman

Brief Biography

  • Seth Klarman is a leading value investor. Mr. Klarman is the President of The Baupost Group, a Boston-based private investment partnership which manages over $7bn in assets on behalf of private families and institutions. Founded in 1983, the firm has achieved investment returns of 20% compounded annually. The firm invests in equities, distressed debt, private equity and real estate.

In 1991, Mr, Klarman authored Margin of Safety, Risk Averse Investing Strategies for the Thoughtful Investor, which since has become a value investing classic. Now out of print, Margin of Safety has sold on Amazon for $1,200 and eBay for $2,000. Before founding Baupost, Mr. Klarman previously worked for Max Heine and Michael Price of Mutual Shares. Mr. Klarman is a graduate of Cornell University and Harvard Business School.

  15. Do you intend to re-issue or up date your book,”Margin of Safety”. I’m certain that it is worth $800 charged by amazon, but I can’t afford that right now.
