Justin Borus - Israel's once in a cycle opportunity
Justin again joins the podcast to provide an insight into the current strategy and outlook for the Ibex Israel fund considering the recent economic environment. Justin is the Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Ibex Investors, an investment firm that focuses on niche and differentiated strategies, primarily through Israeli start-ups and growth companies. Prior to Ibex, Justin worked at Bear, Stearns & Co. Inc, while also serving on the Board of Directors of various non-profits.
During the episode, Justin and David discuss the recent revaluations of fast-growing technology companies around the world and how this has presented great opportunities for the Israel fund. Justin explains the minimal impact that inflation has had on the strategy due to the pricing power that its companies possess. He also compares the current outlook for the public and private markets in Israel, emphasising the fund’s recent focus on publicly listed companies that have had significant revaluations. Justin then highlights the tremendous opportunities that will arise on the private side in the next 6-18 months, when the fund plans to shift its focus toward these companies.
