#304 – Damon Ficklin, Polen Capital – Even Though We Are Clearly A Growth Manager, A Lot Of Us Have Value-Oriented Roots

59 minutes

In episode 304, we welcome our guest, Damon Ficklin, Polen Capital’s head of the Large Company Growth Team and the lead portfolio manager of the firm’s Global Growth strategy.    In today’s episode, we’re talking high quality, concentrated growth investing.  Damon starts by describing his process for analyzing companies and the key metrics they look for when doing so. Then he covers the paradigm shift we’ve seen in the last year and how companies have adapted to the new norm. We talk about companies that have navigated the shift to e-commerce like Estee Lauder, and others that have transformed their business model like Adobe.   Be sure to listen until the end to hear why one of Damon’s most memorable investments is Invisalign, a stock that has soared in the past year.    All this and more in episode 304 with Polen Capital’s Damon Ficklin.
