Show Notes

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.
