Live Webinar With WCM’s CEO, Paul Black | Why Culture Matters

WCM Investment Management (WCM) believes that corporate culture is the biggest influence on a company’s ability to grow its competitive advantage or ‘moat’. This idea is the ethos of WCM and its investment process. While this is a simple concept to grasp, knowing how to identify a healthy culture is much less straightforward.

During this live webinar, Contango Asset Management’s Head of Distribution, Andrew Aitken spoke to WCM’s CEO and Portfolio Manager, Paul Black to discuss how corporate culture can impact the direction of a company’s competitive advantage, how to identify companies with cultures aligned to their economic moat, and why the WCM Quality Global Growth Equity Strategy has a long-term track record of outperformance.
