Why founders make the best investments

Livewire Exclusive

In this week’s Rules of Investing, I sit down with Craig McDonald, co-founder and CEO of Global Founders Funds Management. After successful careers at Goldman Sachs, Craig and his co-founder were inspired to GFFM when they came across research suggesting that founder-run businesses outperformed the broader market. This seems intuitive, with firms like Amazon, Facebook, and Google being among the strongest performers in the world in recent years. Closer to home, Seek, Harvey Norman, Flight Centre, and Nick Scali have all been successful businesses, run by founders. We think there are some important lessons here for all investors, so don’t miss this week’s podcast, hosted by Livewire Markets’ Editor, Patrick Poke.
