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.


Episode 71 of Magic Markets is brought to you by AnBro Capital Investments, an authorised Financial Services Provider FSP number 48371.

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.
