Seth Klarman Letter To Investors: When The Market Is Falling, Focus On Risk

At the core of Klarman's investment strategy is a keen focus on risk reduction. Every investment Baupost makes is carefully analyzed by Klarman and his team so they know every corner of the business and are convinced that the opportunity offers value with a near-zero risk of total loss.

In its long history, Baupost has only reported down years on a few occasions. One of these was 2015 when its bets on energy companies failed to pay off.
