To mark the second London Value Investor Conference, The Peter Cundill Foundation generously sponsored a reception on the evening of 8th May 2013, at which the Choir from Canterbury Cathedral performed. The Foundation also made a large donation to the Canterbury Cathedral restoration fund. All conference delegates were invited to attend this reception.
Peter Cundill was one of the most successful investment managers of his generation. Whilst reading about the value investing principles of Benjamin Graham on a flight from Toronto to Vancouver, he had an ‘epiphany’ and determined that “this is what I want to do for the rest of my life”. Over the next 35 years, he built an exceptional track record. He was also a philanthropist and established the Cundill Foundation, which now controls the very considerable wealth he built over his lifetime and supports a wide range of charities.
Michael Price, who knew Peter well, opened the conference with an address dedicated to his memory.
