Sean Stannard-Stockton of Ensemble Capital Management joined the MOI Global community for a LIVE Q&A session at our special event, Intelligent Investing in Crisis Mode 2020.

Sean provided his perspective and share his wisdom in this turbulent time. As background, listen to Ensemble Capital’s recent coronavirus call and read Sean’s related article.

In the conversation below, Sean discusses:

  • Why “this time really is different,” but why this doesn’t mean investors should abandon the first principles of their investment process.
  • How Ensemble has evaluated whether it is willing to hold a company through the crisis, and why those that make it through will benefit so much.
  • How Ensemble is thinking about new long-term trends investors should consider when thinking about business conditions after coronavirus.

We are pleased to open access to this keynote Q&A session to intelligent investors and interested parties globally. Please read the disclaimers below.
