Magic Markets #84: A First Half to Forget

In the past six months, the markets weren’t a happy place. Whether you were in bonds or in stocks, you suffered. The bull and bear markets of 2020 - 2022 have been severe, driven by unprecedented levels of stimulus and macroeconomic volatility. In difficult times, it’s important to lift your head and (try to) shut out the noise. The team from AnBro Capital Investments has done exactly that. They have released research around the impact on different sectors of this bear market vs. the Global Financial Crisis (GFC) that marked the end of a multi-year bull market in 2007. Growth stocks have suffered the most this year. Importantly, this is a function of valuation rather than underlying performance, as multiples had simply run too hot by the end of 2021. In this episode, we discuss the different sector impacts as well as the differences between this bear market and the GFC. We also discuss the investment thesis that drives the thinking in the Unicorn portfolio that is managed by AnBro.

Magic Markets #81: Hybrid Capital

The talented finance professionals at Westbrooke Alternative Asset Management have been doing a wonderful job of educating the Magic Markets audience about asset classes like private debt and venture capital. In the latest show, we welcome Dino Zuccollo and Richard Asherson back to Magic Markets to discuss the concept of “hybrid capital” – a debt-led private equity approach that uses different instruments to achieve a level of return between debt and equity. The key here is the combination of downside protection, a strong yield and equity upside in these investments. Westbrooke currently executes this strategy in the UK market. For more information on Westbrooke’s alternative asset strategies, be sure to visit the Westbrooke website.

Magic Markets #65: There's value in growth

Craig Antonie of AnBro Capital Investments has joined us before on Magic Markets. In Episode 11 (February 2021), we learnt about his approach to growth investing. In May 2021, he joined us again on Episode 27 to unpack the sell-off in growth stocks at the time and whether this changed his approach (it didn’t – which is a good thing!) We are thrilled to welcome Craig back to Magic Markets. He will be joining us every month to discuss growth stocks and the related complexities of investing in that space. Having been through an incredibly volatile period for growth stocks, Craig takes us through his approach once more and why it has been relatively resilient within the context of the broader sector performance. We specifically discussed the ways in which the Unicorn Global Growth Fund differs from the ARK Innovation Fund. AnBro Capital focuses on a founder-led model and keeps a buffer of cash in the portfolio to respond to volatility - a sensible approach in our view!
