During our 2020 Robotti Global Annual Meeting in December 2020, Isaac discussed his origins as a global investor and having a flexible, focused approach:
“My origins as a global investor started in 2005 when we were buying Thai and Southeast Asian stocks. And since that time, I lived for the better part of a decade in Hong Kong and Singapore and even had extended stays in Beijing and Istanbul and traveled extensively, visiting more than 1,000 companies in Asia and Europe over the years.
I describe my style of value investing as flexible and focused, and today we’ll get into what I mean by that. It’s important because the principle affects idea generation and also risk management, and it’s why our portfolio is defined by a unique set of characteristics, not market cap or a certain geography. We’re looking for good risk-adjusted returns across developed and emerging markets and even seamlessly comparing ideas across them.”
