Show Notes

The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla (Moe-Knows) welcome their first guest on Magic Markets, ETF and retirement fund expert Nerina Visser. They give a fresh angle on the regulatory changes to pensions.

Moe thinks that markets should be free and efficient. Nerina thinks that Regulation 28 needs a rethink. The Ghost is just tired of South African management teams tapping into a trapped pool of capital and then squandering it offshore.

Join these three experts as they debate how your retirement savings should be treated, sponsored by Gray Capital.

Magic Markets #69: Investing in private debt

You’ve gotten to know Dino Zuccollo from Westbrooke Alternative Asset Management over the past couple of months. In Episode 69 of Magic Markets, we meet more of the team members, welcoming Jonti Osher and Richard Asherson to the show to delve into the fascinating world of private debt investments. Together with the Westbrooke team, we discussed the value of this asset class in a portfolio and how high-yield, uncorrelated returns can make a significant difference on a wealth creation journey. Westbrooke operates private debt funds in the UK and in South Africa, taking advantage of a gaping hole left by the banks in lending to certain businesses.

Magic Markets #94: The Westbrooke Portfolio

Alternative assets have been a key discussion point for us this year, as a means to diversify the portfolio as well as hedge against listed assets through achieving uncorrelated exposure. We’ve had a fantastic time learning about the various alternative asset strategies with Westbrooke. We've welcomed the team over several episodes since the first appearance on Episode 59.  We’ve covered a great deal of ground since that show, so we thought it would be useful to our listeners to take a more holistic view and wrap this into a recap of some concepts while probing developments in the market so far this year. In this episode, we ask Dino Zuccollo to reflect on whether demand for alternative assets this year has been in line with expectations. We also talk about trends like local vs. offshore allocations in this space. With reference to the eight previous shows, we recap elements of the alternative asset strategy. Of course, we couldn’t resist discussing our favourite Westbrooke shows thus far and why!
