Bill Ackman: If You're So Smart, Why Aren't You Rich?

Embedded below is hedge fund activist Bill Ackman's 43 minute presentation that he did a little while back for the Floating University.  Initially students or those interested in the video had to pay to see it, but it was just released into public domain on Youtube in it's entirety   The title is "Everything You Need to Know About Finance and Investing in Under an Hour."  Hmmm...somehow I doubt Ackman covers everything, but he has proven himself to be one of the contemporary greats of the activist/value investment world.  Since you'll learn everything you need to know about finance and investing in under an hour, Ackman speaks in broad strokes, but still an educational way to spend some time gleaning insights from a Pro.


  1. Excellent presentation! I am going to show it to my Personal Investing students.
