Hagstrom, CFA, senior portfolio manager at EquityCompass, takes listeners on a journey from the time he first heard Warren Buffett talk about a “money mind” to what he learned while researching and writing his latest book, “Warren Buffett: Inside the Ultimate Money Mind,” about the mindset and ideas that shaped the legendary investor’s investment methods.

The Take 15 Series is a collection of illuminating, short conversations with noted economists, best-selling authors, leading researchers, and successful practitioners on topics ranging from geopolitics and whistleblowing to irrationality and outlooks.
