Prem Watsa Profile

Prem Watsa was born on Aug. 5, 1950. His parents were originally from the small Christian community in the southern city of Mangalore, India. He studied at the Indian Institute of Technology, with a major in chemical engineering. On Sept. 11, 1972, Watsa arrived in London, Ontario with $8 in his pocket and a $600 draft toward the first year's tuition. He attended the MBA program at what later became the Ivey Business School at the University of Western Ontario. He took his first job Confederation Life in 1974. John Watson, the director of research, handed him the book, "Security Analysis."
Watsa's Fairfax Financial is a holding company which, through its subsidiaries, is engaged in property and casualty insurance and reinsurance and the associated investment management.
Fairfax's corporate objective is to achieve a high rate of return on invested capital and build long-term shareholder value. Fairfax seeks to differentiate itself by combining disciplined underwriting with the investment of its assets on a total return basis, which Fairfax believes provides above-average returns over the long-term.

Prem Watsa Investing Philosophy


In 1985, Watsa met Francis Chou, who told him how Warren Buffett made his money through investing Berkshire Hathaway's insurance float. As such, he based Fairfax Financial's strategy off this practive as well. Watsa emphasizes a conservative value investment philosophy, seeking to invest assets on a total return basis, which includes realized and unrealized gains over the long term.
