Safal Niveshak (SN): Could you tell us a little about your background, how you got interested in investing and also about your wonderful blog Basehitinvesting.com?
John Huber (JH): I’ve always loved investing. My father was an engineer, but he maintained an avid interest in the stock market, and did very well investing his savings. I developed a casual interest in stocks and investing in high school through watching his investments do well, and then I became much more interested a few years later after picking up a book at the library one day about Warren Buffett. The book was the first time I had ever read much about Buffett, and like many other value investors, his approach to investing really resonated with me. His ability to articulate the simple logic of value investing captivated me enough to dive headlong into studying the topic in much greater detail, and although I had just begun a career in real estate, I soon set the goal of eventually setting up an investment firm that would be somewhat similar to Buffett’s original partnership. I spent time in real estate, managing property and operating a few small real estate investment partnerships, which eventually allowed me to save enough capital to seed my investment firm in 2013.
