Keynote Bio

Bruce Flatt is Chief Executive Officer of Brookfield Asset Management, a leading global alternative asset manager with over $265 billion of assets under management. Brookfield is a global value investor with a focus on the real asset sectors of real estate, renewable power and infrastructure.

Mr. Flatt joined Brookfield in 1990 and has been CEO for 15 years. Under his leadership, Brookfield has developed a global presence with 700 investment professionals in 100 offices across over 30 countries. Activities are conducted through three flagship private funds for institutional clients and four permanent capital listed entities: Brookfield Property Partners, Brookfield Renewable Partners, Brookfield Infrastructure Partners and Brookfield Business Partners, all of which trade on the NYSE.

Mr. Flatt chairs Brookfield’s Investment Committee, whose investment approach is to acquire high-quality assets at less than replacement cost by looking for opportunities in regions and sectors during periods of financial upheaval or operational challenge. It then uses its deep global operating experience to improve long-term performance on behalf of its clients.

Prior to his current role, Mr. Flatt ran the company’s real estate operations, including the acquisition out of bankruptcy of Olympia & York in New York in the early 1990s, which became the basis of growth for the property group. Following this acquisition, the company proceeded to build and acquire a portfolio of iconic office buildings globally by investing in numerous corporate distress situations. The same build out was completed with Brookfield’s renewable power business, its infrastructure business and, more recently, the scaling up of its private equity business.

Recent significant transactions include the acquisition of the Colombian hydro company Isagen, Canary Wharf and Center Parcs in the UK, a major stake in GGP in the U.S. and Australian infrastructure company Babcock & Brown and Asciano port company. Mr. Flatt has been on more than 20 public company boards over the past two decades.

Berkshire System Summit 2018

Value Investor Register

2018 Berkshire System Summit
Thursday, May 3, 2018
Held at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, College of Business Administration, Mammel Hall

Berkshire System Summit is an in-depth discussion on the unique culture, principles and methods used by Warren Buffett’s conglomerate to become America’s 2nd largest company (by sales) over 50 years. Coined by Vice Chairman Charlie Munger, ‘the Berkshire System’ was outlined by him in a 2015 shareholder letter in celebration of the company’s 50th anniversary. To understand the system is to understand Berkshire Hathaway, one of the world’s most admired companies. Often copied but never duplicated, these are some of the areas the Summit will explore:

  • Extraordinary Capital Allocation: Investing in pieces of companies through the stock market as well as wholly owned subsidiaries using value investment methods; Buying old economy industries; Purchasing with the intention to keep not trade; Focusing on durable competitive advantages; Centralizing capital and reallocating to highest and best use; Being paid (with float) to hold capital to invest
  • Unique Corporate Values Culture: Never losing a subsidiary CEO to a competitor; Gold standard of corporate governance; 370,000 employees with only 25 at headquarters; a system of deserved management trust; the buyer of choice; Fort Knox of capital when markets need it most; Employees are always in a position to do the right thing; Well defined management succession plan that is deep within the organization
  • Passionate and Talented Managers: A management team assembled over time that prefers work over retirement; Fair manager compensation; Berkshire CEOs selected based on merit not seniority; No retirement required and often discouraged
