Rob Millner was appointed Chairman of Soul Patts in 1999, recently celebrating his 20 year anniversary. As one of Australia’s most experienced and respected business leaders, Rob will share his valuable insights on various sectors of the Australian economy and the investment process that has delivered 16% compound annual growth over the last 40 years.
Soul Patts has been listed on the ASX since 1903. From its humble beginnings with a chemist shop in Sydney’s Pitt St Mall, it has grown into a $5B conglomerate with investments across a range of industries including building materials, telecommunications, natural resources, retail, agriculture, property, investments and corporate advisory. Some market participants have likened Soul Patts to “Australia’s Berkshire Hathaway” with its enviable track record of never failing to pay a dividend to shareholders in its 117 year history, and one of only two ASX companies to have increased dividends every year since 2002. $1,000 invested in Soul Patts in 1979 would be worth around $400,000 today.
Rob Millner is also Chairman of Brickworks Limited, BKI Investment Company, Milton Corporation and New Hope Corporation and a Director of Australian Pharmaceutical Industries and TPG Telecom.
