Show Notes

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.

Magic Markets #17: Trading the Scandals

Corporate governance failures. Frauds. Accounting misstatements. A “hole in the balance sheet” – unfortunately, these breakdowns in trust happen on the market. When they do, the repercussions are severe not just for shareholders in the company in question, but potentially for the market as a whole. Have you noticed that JSE corporates are doing fewer acquisitions in exchange for shares these days? Mr Price just bought Yuppiechef for over R400m in cold, hard cash. Before the Steinhoff era, entrepreneurs were more inclined to accept shares in listed companies in exchange for their businesses. Those days are gone. What impact do the likes of Greensill and Wirecard have on their respective industries? How can investors and traders spot scandals and take advantage of them? Tongaat Hulett. EOH. This episode is packed with commentary by hosts The Finance Ghost and Moe-Knows on the companies that previously dominated the headlines for all the wrong reasons.

Magic Markets #53: Bad Balance Sheets

In Episode 53 of Magic Markets, we kicked things off with a brief discussion on Jerome Powell (who is now apparently considered “hawkish”) and the Turkish Lira, which is rather broken. We then moved from fiscal balance sheets to company balance sheets. In particular, we explored what happens when bad balance sheets happen to good people. In the aftermath of the pandemic, we’ve seen companies struggle with unsustainable debt. In some cases, this is an opportunity for large new equity investors or existing anchor shareholders to increase their stakes at a depressed valuation. By working through examples like Tongaat, Brait and EOH, we show how important the balance sheet can be. Magic Markets is your invitation to be part of our discussions on macro themes and company-specific news in the markets. ...

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.
