ANNUAL FIRESIDE CHAT - PLEASE JOIN US IN NOVEMBER
We're once again hosting our annual Fireside Chat featuring Gregg Filmon, President of Value Partners Investments. I encourage you to come out and discuss with Gregg and I what is happening with our portfolios, what we WILL NOT do with your money to chase short-term, speculative, returns and how we're positioning your money with absolute prudence and to meet your financial objectives.
Our venue is just the right size so that you can comfortably engage in discussion, or just sit back and take it all in. This event is an open invitation but please confirm the date and time with us so we can keep track numbers. Email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (403) 226-0321.
Once again, following the discussion a sommelier from Willow Park Wines & Spirits will lead us through a private wine tasting. Naturally, this is optional for those who wish to participate.
VALUE PARTNERS INVESTMENTS: QUARTERLY YEAR IN REVIEW
We believe it’s important for our investors to be informed about the decisions being made by the portfolio managers of your funds. In this effort of increased transparency, Value Partners Investments has compiled a series of year-in-review presentations to summarize the activity and changes that have taken place over the most recent 12-month period.

VALUE INVESTING WORKS: WHY ISN’T IT MORE POPULAR?
The link below will bring you to a short article from the Globe & Mail that outlines what Absolute Value investing is, and that it works! This is exactly the investment strategy employed by the Value Partners Investments pools managed by Vito Maida of Patient Capital Management.
WHAT YOU OWN AND WHY YOU OWN IT
At Signature Financial Security we believe it’s important for our investors to learn more about the companies that their money is being invested in. In this effort of increased transparency, Value Partners Investments has compiled a series of videos featuring specific companies that are held in their pools. The following link will safely bring you to the video library on the Value Partners website where you can choose a company to learn more about.
A GUEST LECTURE AT WESTERN UNIVERSITY
There are only two academic programs in the world that teach the principles of Value Investing first laid out by Benjamin Graham.
One of them is the Benjamin Graham Centre for Value Investing at the Richard Ivey School of Business, in London, Ontario.
Earlier this year the Ben Graham Centre invited Vito Maida to guest lecture the students on putting Absolute Value Investing into practice. Vito is the Portfolio Manager on the Value Partners Investments 'Value Pool,' ‘Income Pool’ and ‘Foreign Equity Pool.’
That lecture was recorded and the following link will take you to the Ben Graham Centre web page, and you can watch Vito’s presentation.
I know you won't all get through the entire presentation, but do try to take in the first 20-25 minutes. Remember that you can always watch it in pieces, and I really encourage you to do so. Vito speaks to the students using very clear language and a methodology that is completely intuitive and is free of academic mumbo-jumbo.
