#28 - Angie Ellis

#28 - Angie Ellis


Angie Ellis is a private investor from Melbourne. You may know her as 8020 Invest on social media or you may have read about her as part of Fairfax Media's Shares Race, which she has won a few times.*** FULL SHOW NOTES ***Angie's approach to investing is refreshing and logical and fuses together both fundamental and technical investing techniques to build two sub-portfolios. We go through her process in detail and talk about her former life as a business owner, installing MYOB accounting software and running a small-to-medium business.I think this episode is an especially good one for part-time and DIY investors who are willing to do the extra work to get an informational or behavioural edge over others in the market. Angie's tools, techniques and strategies seem simple enough but there are some subtleties, so it's worth paying close attention.I hope you enjoy this episode with Angie Ellis of 8020 Invest.

Scott Williams is the Portfolio Manager for Fiftyone Capital's Progressive Global Fund.Scott employs a long/short strategy, with a unique activism angle to boot. Combined with his history in stockbroking and as a trader, Scott's experiences and investment process stand in neat contrast to my own.Nonetheless, Scott's journey throughout the finance industry and the story of how Fiftyone Capital came to be are fascinating. In this episode, we talk stockbroking, surfing, how a year-long back injury spawned a managed fund and activist investing. I hope you enjoy my discussion with Scott Williams of Fiftyone Capital.FULL SHOW NOTES & OTHER EPISODES

In the early 2000s, he teamed up to buy the Intelligent Investor, which was later separated from Forager.In this conversation, we discuss Steve's investment process, including actively seeking out sectors or markets in distress, competitive advantages and tools for improving your returns.I had never met Steve prior to this chat, but my impression of him was that he is a humble and intellectually honest investor with bucketloads of integrity. I stand by that.Though Steve might say much of his success was due to luck, there is an obvious connection between his successes and, I think, him being a smart, honest and likeable person.To start, here's Steve talking about his passion for running marathons.
