Investing Philosophy

Singer is well-known for taking an activist investor stance in underperforming companies, and for buying sovereign debt at a discount, including countries such as Peru, Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Argentina.

What Long-Term Investing Is All About Gurus discuss the advantages of buying and holding Warren Buffett, Paul Singer, Seth Klarman, Jeff Ub - What Long-Term Investing Is All About
Most investors will claim to be long-term, buy-and-hold investors, as that is what they are told they should be. Buying and holding for the long term, through the market's peaks and troughs, is not as easy as it appears however.

You only need to look at a long-term chart of the S&P 500 to realize the benefits of this strategy. Even though the market has its ups and downs, over the long run stocks have climbed steadily higher. If you assume the index will perform over the next hundred years as it has over the previous century, the chances of you losing money in equities over the long term are slim. More...
