Investing Like Aesop

There are plenty of ways to make a quick buck but in the pursuit of long-term wealth creation, Seb Petit thinks we should be more Tortoise than Hare. Investing is an endurance sport after all. In his presentation, he’ll consider the business models and behavioural characteristics required to stay the course and why focusing on companies committed to dividend growth is an under-rated approach if you want to steadily compound wealth over long periods.

Learning objectives:

  • Developing an understanding of a steady growth approach
  • Understanding the behavioural characteristics required to invest for the long-term
  • Learn where there are opportunities for steady growth and dividend growth investments in the coming years
