CHARLIE ROSE 00:00

See I've been wanting – I've been you know we had this wonderful interview and I said – I would occasionally say whatever happened to Peter Lynch, he quits? (Laughter) It's one of those things because whatever happened to Peter Lynch?


PETER LYNCH 00:13

Right.


CHARLIE ROSE 00:13

Is my question.


PETER LYNCH 00:14

It's funny, people said he'll start his own fund. He'll do a hedge fund I said no. I've had enough of the BCF (ph).


CHARLIE ROSE 00:19

He wants to do it all on his own, he doesn't need the great Fidelity. You know as a –


PETER LYNCH 00:24

Well I recover small transmission is one gear, overdrive. That's it.


CHARLIE ROSE 00:27

Yes. (Laughter)


PETER LYNCH 00:28

So you can't sort of run a fund.


CHARLIE ROSE 00:29

Yeah. (Laughter)


PETER LYNCH 00:30

And I have a lovely wife Caroline and three children.


CHARLIE ROSE 00:31

Right, right.


PETER LYNCH 00:32

I wanted to do other things so I'm now worked very part time with younger analysts it's been – my father died at 46.


CHARLIE ROSE 00:37

Yes and was that the reason 46?


PETER LYNCH 00:40

Because it sticks in your mind. He took sick when he was 43, died at 46. Maybe I was going to live to 146 but I said I love the job, I love the company but I worked every Saturday for 11 years.


CHARLIE ROSE 00:49

Yeah.


PETER LYNCH 00:50

I just wanted to spend more time with my wife and family.


CHARLIE ROSE 00:52

And you were constantly on the road because you believed in –


PETER LYNCH 00:54

You got it.


CHARLIE ROSE 00:55

Being there. In fact you would take her with you.


PETER LYNCH 00:56

Yes.


CHARLIE ROSE 00:57

And family with you because you know in search of understanding the company.


PETER LYNCH 01:01

Correct, that's it.


CHARLIE ROSE 01:02

And so what have you learned since then? I mean do you look back and say "Oh, I stopped too early." B, "I stopped too late?"


PETER LYNCH 01:12

No, I – it's lucky, it was a perfect time. It was an absolutely perfect time to be able to see all my three children grew up and now they're all married. And I spend time with my grandchildren. You know it's fabulous.
