Episode 14: Peter Cooper, Founder & Chief Investment Officer of Cooper Investors
Hey everyone and welcome to another big episode of Euroz Hartleys “Finding the Front”.
Our show continues to grow fast and thanks for all the support. In this brand new episode we have something a little bit different and in many ways quite special. Australia has many great fund managers but only a few have achieved the respect and success over such a long period of time as Mr Peter Cooper, the founder of Cooper Investors based in Melbourne. Whilst he won’t acknowledge it himself and shies away from this type of recognition, Peter has been referred to as an investment legend and a titan of Australian Funds Management. An opportunity to sit down with Peter for an extensive conversation and gain such deep insights is rare.
Peter covers off on his background and what led him to his love of investment, the influence of the great Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, long term investing and the Cooper Investors philosophy, and the present state of the world including his observations on the rising interest rate and rising inflation environment, the Russian Ukraine conflict, China, Bitcoin, Oil. Gold, Governments, the Australian Dollar, decarbonisation and his views on active v passive investing. As they say, knowledge is no burden to carry, and this is a podcast where Peter shares his valuable perspective and one that can give some serious understanding of life as a highly regarded, long established manager and investor of money.
