Warren Buffett’s charity dinner spurred the boss of an online-trading platform to embrace value investing
- Cryptocurrency entrepreneur Justin Sun paid $4.6 million for a charity dinner with Warren Buffett in January.
- Sun hoped to convert Buffett into a Bitcoin fan, but instead one of his guests, eToro CEO Yoni Assia, embraced Buffett’s value-investing approach.
- Assia read the definitive book on the subject written by Buffett’s mentor, hired a value-investing consultant, and became a bigger proponent of in-depth research and longer investment horizons, Bloomberg reported.
- The boss of the social-trading platform also tweeted that value investing is a “hidden magic that reveals itself to you only after 20 years of making 15-20% and compounding it.”
