Ben McGarry is the Founder of Totus Capital. The Latin word for Totus means absolute. It's a fitting name because Ben is now one of Australia's leading hedge fund managers, having been thrust into the spotlight following a number of high profile sell-offs and collapses, such as ABC Learning. Upon graduating from UQ with a commerce degree, Ben went to work at a large accounting firm to master his technical skills before moving to London to start investing. In this episode, Ben talks about the experiences that shaped his investment philosophy before going into detail on the key things he looks for when short-selling Aussie companies. Ben and I talk at length about business, big economic issues, some infamous corporate events and the success of Totus to date. Given the nature of our conversation, if you're new to the world of hedge funds or need to brush up on some lessons please visit the Rask Finance website where we've created a free short video course addressing some of the concepts discussed in this and other episodes. Putting aside a few minutes to understand the key terms will mean you get a lot more from this and future episodes.
