Investment Success, Defining Financial Freedom and The Big Short

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to spend the evening with the EdgePoint team and fund manager, Geoff MacDonald.  Geoff is outstanding at explaining 

why Edgepoint invests in the companies they do and why those companies are successful. I left the meeting with 90 slides, graphs and charts, and more importantly, a renewed passion for the Edgepoint team.
