Charles De Kock, co-head of absolute return funds at Coronation Fund Managers, was my special guest on the Investment Community podcast. You can listen to the conversation with Charles here.

In this episode Charles tells:

  • How he took advantage of his big break to change the arc of his career.
  • How he balances logical analysis with intuition.
  • How the best way to get rich is … slowly.

We also discussed:

  • The degree to which perfectionists struggle as portfolio managers.
  • The importance of culture, and cultural fit, in investment teams.
  • The probability of failure of smaller asset management firms in SA.
