Livewire Exclusive

Disruption is everywhere these days. Whether it’s Amazon and Kogan disrupting traditional retail, Facebook and Google disrupting print and television advertising, or Netflix disrupting pay TV, it’s impossible to avoid. Incumbents face the dilemma of disruption: adapt to new ways and risk hurting their existing business, or stick to their existing model and risk becoming redundant in an ever-changing world. At the forefront of digital disruption are the global tech giants; Amazon, Baidu, Tencent, Alibaba, Google, and Facebook, to name a few. This week’s guest on Livewire’s Rules of Investing is Alex Pollak, CEO of Loftus Peak, which specialises in investing in these global disruptive businesses. In this episode, we discuss which firm has the best CEO, whether the Chinese firms can challenge the Americans on their own turf, and whether technology stocks are in a bubble.
