Magic Markets #71: Investing in Disruptors

Magic Markets #71: Investing in Disruptors

Growth. Value. Commodities. These cycles ebb and flow, with investors needing to keep a level head and clarity of thought around a long-term wealth creation strategy. In a modern world that is rapidly changing thanks to technology, not allocating a portion of a portfolio to disruptors is a mistake. With Craig Antonie from AnBro Capital Investments, we use the example of Crowdstrike to discuss a disruptive business that was incredibly ahead of its time. It takes visionary entrepreneurs to spot and understand technological trends. It takes visionary investors to be willing to take a risk on them. We also use the opportunity to congratulate the AnBro team on their latest award and to find out more about what it takes to create a boutique asset management business. Episode 71 of Magic Markets is brought to you by AnBro Capital Investments, an authorised Financial Services Provider FSP number 48371. Invest in the future. Invest in growth.

Magic Markets #70: Crypto Arbitrage Update

Long-standing Magic Markets listeners will know the Future Forex team. They introduced the concept of crypto arbitrage to us, a process of making profits on Bitcoin pricing differences between South Africa and offshore. Instead of taking a view on Bitcoin itself, this allows you to generate arbitrage profits and enjoy an interesting and potentially lucrative source of income each year. You may not know this, but your annual offshore investment allowance under South African Reserve Bank rules is an asset that you can tap into every year.

Magic Markets #68: Burgers and fairy tales

Burgers and fairy tales. These are the things that people like to invest in. No, really. In this episode of Magic Markets, we take a step back and discuss two investment themes that we find interesting. The first is the quick-service restaurant (QSR) industry, which commands premium valuations in markets across the world. There are global giants and regional powerhouses, with examples on the JSE as well as in international markets. We discuss the different types of models followed, along with concepts like franchise vs. corporate-owned models and the benefits of each strategy. We then move on to the art of storytelling, which encompasses businesses like Disney, Netflix and Hasbro. These names are familiar to Magic Markets Premium subscribers. We discuss the different strategies and the dynamics of content creators vs. platforms. ...
