Regulation and disruption are the twin forces driving the health and wealth of Australian companies, said Matt Williams, portfolio manager at Airlie Funds Management, in our latest interview.
Matt, alongside his old sparring partner, Airlie co-founder John Sevior, has been investing in Australian Equities for over 25 years, giving them an enviable and arguably unmatched understanding of which companies are more likely to beat the market.
The Airlie Australian Share Fund, managed by Matt and Deputy Portfolio Manager Emma Goodsell, is a concentrated, go-anywhere, best ideas portfolio employing an investment process honed over their extensive time in the market.
