#285 – Best Idea Show - David Marcus, Evermore Global Advisors - Do You Sell Things That You Like To Buy Things That You Now Love?

74 minutes

In episode 285, we welcome our guest David Marcus, the co-founder and Chief Investment Officer of Evermore Global Advisors, where he manages the Evermore Global Value Fund. In today’s episode, we’re talking about David’s best idea: special situations in Europe.

David’s been investing in Europe for almost his entire career and thinks now is the best opportunity for special situations he has ever seen. First, he explains what it was like for him to watch legendary investor Michael Price navigate the 1987 crash. Then David explains what led him to start Evermore Global and the firm’s investment philosophy. He touches on the different types of special situations he focuses on, including spinoffs, restructurings, and breakups, and why activism, catalysts, and cheaper valuations make Europe especially attractive.

As the conversation winds down, David talks about some of his current holdings and the benefits of investing in family-owned businesses.

Please enjoy this special “Best Ideas” episode with Evermore Global Advisor’s David Marcus.
