In this weeks' special 'On the Couch', we catch up with Mark Landau, the CIO of Long Short Fund (LSF) and the Co -Founder of L1 Capital.
As many of you will know, we have been big supporters of LSF ,and have done extremely well out of this LIC which we first started buying in 2020 at a 30% discount to its NTA. Since then the stock has risen from 100c to 280c. Although the discount has closed, we remain very keen on the fund and their way of doing things. Having chatted to Mark, it is clear LSF should be on every investors radar. Plenty of great ideas and brilliant advice on the investment process.
