Interesting opportunities in financials

Livewire Exclusive

Omkar Joshi from Regal Funds Management believes that there are a number of interesting opportunities in the Australian financial sector. While he believes the major banks look fairly valued there are a number of companies employing ‘self help’ strategies that are catching his eye.

“Fundamentally you want to look for the things that are actually improving where the story is changing or self help”

Key Points

  • ANZ is an example of a company where the self help opportunities have the potential to offset industry challenges
  • The insurance sector is experiencing rising insurance premium rates for the first time in a number of years. This provides them with a lot of upside leverage
  • Challenger continues to maintain a steady course and is selling more annuity products with few headwinds to deal with
  • Joshi outlines one stock that is particularly catching his eye when it comes to employing ‘self help’ to improve their prospects
