Warren visits the Oracle of Omaha

'Woodstock of Capitalism' strategy continues to attract thousands of people

The 'Woodstock of Capitalism' annual meeting continues to be one of the most anticipated and quirky investment events.

702's John Robbie spoke to 702's personal finance expert, Warren Ingram, about the event.

Listen to the interview below:

It's definitely not contrived, I think it's something that has grown organically over a period of 40 years.

Warren Ingram, 702's personal finance expert

It's a process where Warren [Buffet] wants to sit down and really talk to his shareholders and answer their questions.

Warren Ingram, 702's personal finance expert

What's incredible is that they answer questions for five hours straight... People ask questions from really technical accounting questions through to a youngster standing up and asking how they can find the passion in their work.

Warren Ingram, 702's personal finance expert

If it was edited or controlled then they would have cut down one of two of the people. Some of the questions would make one cringe.
