Sohn Hearts & Minds goes to Hobart

Friday’s Sohn Hearts & Minds conference is barely in the rear view mirror, but already Hobart’s Federation Concert Hall is almost entirely booked solid for next year’s event, taking place on November 13 for the first time on the Apple Isle. At $3500 a ticket, that shows how popular the thing’s become.

Friday’s Sohn Hearts & Minds conference is barely in the rear view mirror, but already Hobart’s Federation Concert Hall is almost entirely booked solid for next year’s event, taking place on November 13 for the first time on the Apple Isle. At $3500 a ticket, that shows how popular the thing’s become.

The stock-picking conference has raised more than $10 million for medical research in its first four years, and was lured to Melbourne in 2018 with the inducement of a big cheque from Premier Investments billionaire Solomon Lew. Next year, it’s Premier Will Hodgman, or more accurately, the Tasmanian taxpayer, in the benefactor’s role.

Also roped in: iconoclastic professional gambler turned avant garde collector David Walsh, who’s hosting an associated party at MONA on November 12. We’re thinking Eyes Wide Shut meets The Business.

Bridgewater’s Ray Dalio and Oaktree’s Howard Marks weren’t a bad headline duo this year, but if, as strongly rumoured, Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger are making the trek, expect a fainting epidemic among portfolio managers along Elizabeth Street Pier.
