Buffet believes the smartest investment style is to focus on active ownership. He doesn’t just buy shares. He buys enough shares to be invited onto the company board. Once there, he can directly influence decisions. And, so for example, by making sure the right C-suite is hired and the right policies are followed, he ensures the company will be successful, which raises the value of his stockholding. And while he does prefer a long-term portfolio, he no longer owns 19 of the first 20 companies he invested in, so his ‘hold’ policy does have caveats.
