Joe Magyer, CFA On The Australian Investors Podcast

My guest for this episode is a very special one for The Australian Investors Podcast and for Owen.

Joe Magyer is the Chief Investment Officer of Lakehouse Capital. Lakehouse is part of The Motley Fool Australia, which is where I met Joe many years ago. To my mind, Joe is at the cutting edge of what it means to be a value investor in modern times.

In this conversation, Joe describes his three fascinations in great detail, how he structures his team, valuation and loads more, including his favourite coffee spots in and around Melbourne and Sydney.
