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

Seth Klarman's Baupost Group hedge fund ranks among the world's largest and most admired, a position it has built for itself over the past three decades. During this period, the fund has produced a tremendous amount of wealth for its investors with an average compound annual return of around 20%.

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.
