Throughout, a series of fascinating real-life case studies illustrate the traits that signify quality, as well as some that flatter to deceive.
The authors' firm, AKO Capital, has a strong track record of finding and investing in quality companies - helping it deliver a compound annual growth rate more than double that of the market since inception. <i>Quality Investing</i> sheds light on the investment philosophy, processes and tough lessons that have contributed to this consistent outperformance.
