The Listed Investment Company Showcase

Livewire Exclusive

Livewire Markets

Recently, we had the opportunity to work with the Australian Shareholders Association (ASA) to showcase ideas and strategies from a range of Listed Investment Companies (LICs). 

The idea is to give you access to the managers behind the funds, how they present their value proposition, and for them to share some of the finer details.

We’ve compiled these recordings for you below. Simply scroll down to watch the presentations and click on the links shared under the video to access the presentation slides (please read the disclaimer at the bottom of this page).
