    Exceptionally insightful material for a recent economics graduate such as myself. Planning to rewatch for further study.

    Had the pleasure to work with Benoit for years on the CFA Institute Curriculum development. I am not surprised to see how insightful his comments are. A real master piece! Yves Courtois

    I'm surprised that this interview was not better received by the RVTV audience. The valuation principles that Benoit discusses are more important than ever in a world where the Divergence between GAAP and Pro-Forma Earnings is so wide. Granted, an argument can be made for tech companies and their leadership as a sector over the past few years; but my money is on an eventual reversion to the real analysis that Benoit discusses.

    Great Interview! I would trust this man with my money. Very rational, experienced and skeptical. Looking for the higher profit margins in the supply chain. No wonder his firm has such an exceptional record. They earned it. DLS

    Great interview! Looking at ratings confirm the audience is primarily interested in macro. Thanks for broadening and bringing bottom-up equity investors.

    A lot of very smart insights into how they invest. The ETF conversation was particularly interesting as a source of Alpha. Hard work = solid returns. Should not be a surprise but it probably is to many.

    I thought the comments about the footnotes in the reports were interesting, and I wonder how many others read them or pay attention to them.

    Refreshing focus on company profitability, whereas most presentations here on macro leave me afraid to invest lately.

    Amazing. One of my favorites, explaining how there is not a shortcut for hard work and fundamentals. I particularly like how he scans the official reports and then starts forensically to see who is real and who is full of BS and then takes appropriate positions for or against. His breakdown of the vertically integrated supply chain is brilliant.

    There's also a v.interesting Asian Moat fund which focuses on "Hidden champions" in EM which have high ROE, competitive advantages etc.. They focus a lot on Forensic accounting & advance / early detecting of potential accounting fraud. But once they've cleared those kind of tests, there are very interesting opportunities Person who runs the fund : and Asia's Moat Report :

    Wow, he is a very, very sharp guy! I really like his forensic accounting approach (applicable everywhere but absolutely essential in China). His comments on ETF's are spot on too! Great segment.

    Excellent, informative, how to think, under the radar type interview. Negative early response puzzling but that is the *edge* by getting value where another does not.

    Always something to draw out of each video. For me, I thought his comment about indexes and dynamics within them (technological changes / creative destruction) limit the profit potential when investing in them was interesting. I would imagine that it depends on your investment horizon and particular sector.
