Joe Magyer of Lakehouse Capital presented his in-depth investment thesis on Afterpay Touch (Australia: APT) at Best Ideas 2018.
Afterpay Touch is a little-followed, fast-growing company based in Melbourne, Australia. The company’s core offering, Afterpay, is a “buy now, pay later” consumer payment platform that in just over three years has reached acceptance at more than 10,000 online retailers. Afterpay, which is now used by 1.3+ million Australians, is also expanding into new adjacent verticals, including travel, in-store retail, and new countries, which have high ceilings.
