Investor and writer Howard Marks is a co-founder and co-chairman of Oaktree Capital Management, the world’s largest distressed debt investor. Recognized in the investment community for his memos to Oaktree clients, Marks uses these missives to inform clients about his investment strategies, his opinions about market opportunities and risks, and his insights about the economy. He is also the author of a 2011 book, The Most Important Thing: Uncommon Sense for the Thoughtful Investor.

In November 2015, Marks spoke with members of the Journal of Investment Consulting Editorial Advisory Board about his investment philosophy and Oaktree’s corporate culture.
