How this market animal hunts stocks

Livewire Exclusive

Livewire Markets

For David Allingham of Eley Griffiths Group (EGG), investing isn’t about achieving some delicate balance of value or growth stocks. It’s all about finding amazing businesses early, and then going hard.

“We’re genuinely market animals. We love getting stocks right; nothing makes us happier than getting a stock call right for our investors. We beat ourselves up when stock calls go against us.”

This philosophy has helped the Eley Griffiths Emerging Companies Fund achieve 20%+ returns per annum since inception, and vaulted Allingham as Livewire’s top small-cap stock picker last year. EGG bought nearly 5% of Afterpay at $2 and Xero at $14 after its research process identified their tremendous global opportunity. 

But Allingham and his team aren’t sentimental holders. These stocks have had their run, and now EGG is stalking their next big opportunity. Learn about how the team picks winners, and two companies they like right now.
