The power of long-term investing

Equities can be volatile, but may be highly rewarding for investors. To maximise their chances of success, investors are aware they need to take a long-term view, however, most mutual funds available to them are focussed on short-term relative outcomes. In this session, Alister will draw on his 25 years' experience to outline an alternative. He will discuss his approach to long-only equity investing and highlight what he believes is the biggest alpha opportunity available to equity investors and where he has conviction in today's rapidly changing market.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand how benchmarking has evolved over time
  • Identify the mispricing of compounding in equities and the alpha opportunity this creates
  • Explain the characteristics of businesses which may be able to compound over time
