As Chief Investment Officer for Sarbit Advisory Services Inc., Larry Sarbit is a Canadian financial services veteran. Starting his career in 1979 with Richardson Securities as an analyst, Larry began his long study of the U.S. market.
Larry became a Portfolio Manager for Investors Group in 1987 where he managed several U.S. Equity funds with assets over $3 billion. He went on to repeat his success at AIC, where he effectively managed over $2.2 billion.
Larry has over 25 years of investment experience. Undeterred by market volatility, Larry continues to follow his investment philosophy of buying great businesses at a bargain price, while managing with discipline and patience.
Larry’s objective is to pursue higher returns with lower risk – the ideal of intelligent investing. He aims to identify opportunities other investors miss, which means finding companies that are trading at a deep discount to fair value and spotting situations where weak businesses can experience dramatic turnarounds with the guidance of activist shareholders.
