NON REG For Fairfax Financial as it will prob grow 15% to 20% AVG
tfsa for Fairfax India as it can double, triple or even go up multiple times in next 5 years

Recently purchased some Fairfax India inside TFSA and RSP. Although I'm optimistic, it's hard to imagine it go up multiple times in next 5 years as valuations seem lofty. My base case is 10% per year.

What's the rationale for Fairfax Financial to grow 15 -20% on average?

If you look at Fairfax Financial track record they where able to go at AVG 15% per year.. The last couple years it did not grow due to hedges but they have learned from it...

Read Annual report 2018

Fairfax India - Bengaluru International Airport Limited (BIAL) is under valued if they can actually develop it and IPO it in couple years this can shot up..

This is great. Thank you! It's interesting that it's diversified globally and stock hasn't done much since 2015. Are there any other resources that you could point me towards to learn more about Fairfax Financial?

of the two - FFH (Fairfax Financial) or FIU.U (Fairfax India), which of the two do you consider the best investment for a 12 mth hold & why?

Fairfax Financial as I believe this market is at it highs (maybe another 2 years level) ....Fairfax has lots of cash they can use in downturn + they have been able to make money in rough markets....
