Magic Markets Ep110: Investable Businesses for Westbrooke

2023-02-01T18:38:14+02:00

For founders and executives, raising capital is always a hot topic. Cash is the lifeblood of any organisation and the “capital stack” is an important and complicated area of finance that far too many entrepreneurs don’t have a proper understanding of. After several podcasts with the Westbrooke team members, in which we have learnt about the different investment mandates in the group and how they operate, we welcomed Jonti Osher back to the show alongside Brent Blankfield, both of whom focus on flexible capital solutions. If you ever wanted to know how to make your business more attractive to an investor [...]

Ever wanted to know what wealth managers think about alternative investments and how they are using them in clients' portfolios? Regular Magic Markets listeners have become familiar with the Westbrooke Alternative Asset Management team and the types of investments that they specialise in. This week, we look beyond the team to find out what independent wealth managers think about alternative assets. Based on the results of a survey of wealth managers that was arranged by Dino Zuccollo of Westbrooke, we were able to discuss points like: • What types of alternative assets are popular? • What is the priority for investors – [...]

2022-10-26T22:04:48+02:00

In the latest episode with the team from Westbrooke Alternative Asset Management, Richard Asherson joined us from the UK to talk about market conditions on the ground. The UK has been extremely topical this year and macroeconomic challenges are felt in private and public markets. Apart from asking whether his money was on Liz or the lettuce, we touched on a number of fascinating topics: • What does it mean to look for asymmetrical returns in a debt-led structure? • How do current rates in the UK compare to long-term averages? • What are the impacts of inflation on dealmaking and [...]

Magic Markets Ep94: The Westbrooke Portfolio

2022-09-21T22:22:38+02:00

Alternative assets have been a key discussion point for us this year, as a means to diversify the portfolio as well as hedge against listed assets through achieving uncorrelated exposure. We’ve had a fantastic time learning about the various alternative asset strategies with Westbrooke. We've welcomed the team over several episodes since the first appearance on Episode 59. We’ve covered a great deal of ground since that show, so we thought it would be useful to our listeners to take a more holistic view and wrap this into a recap of some concepts while probing developments in the market so far [...]

Magic Markets Ep81: Hybrid Capital

2022-06-23T00:01:51+02:00

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. The content [...]

Magic Markets Ep76: Private Equity – there’s more to investing

2022-05-18T23:17:35+02:00

On the equity investment spectrum from venture capital at one end to public markets at the other, private equity occupies a vast area in the middle. A successful private equity strategy is a hybrid of those concepts, with venture capital influences like growth and scale and public market influences like strong cash flows and solid assets. Each market is different. In South Africa, the private equity industry is based on relationships and the best deals are done in an elite club. In the UK, the market is far more welcoming to a new entrant and there is a wide network of [...]
