The London Quality-Growth Investor Conference was inaugurated on June 16th, 2022. The conference brought together a select group of accomplished fund managers who have demonstrated an ability to identify companies with the qualities that make them poised for growth over time. These qualities often include competitive advantages that can help these companies maintain their market position against external challenges.
Such advantages might include, but are not limited to:
Scale advantage, cost-leadership, customer switching costs, network effects, brands, hard-to-replicate assets, high relative market share, experience-curve advantages, intellectual property, unique processes, distribution monopolies, distribution networks, data advantages, management expertise, capital allocation discipline, institutionalized cost consciousness, and regulatory barriers.
As an established annual event, the second QG Conference is scheduled for September 21st, 2023. The conference will feature presentations by these fund managers, who will discuss their investment ideas and explain why their approach to investing in high-quality, growing companies at discounts to intrinsic value has produced superior returns over time.
The London Quality-Growth Investor Conference is an event that focuses on a particular investment approach. Quality-growth investors look for companies with a small number of specific characteristics that suggest they are likely to grow over time, often because they possess competitive advantages that can help them resist external threats to their market position.
The QG 2023 will feature presentations by some of the world’s leading investors, as well as lesser-known and smaller firms. Attendees will gain valuable insights into successful investment methods and approaches, as well as commentary on the current investment climate and specific investment ideas. The conference is designed with asset owners in mind, providing a high proportion of attendees who invest in funds.
