How Alternative Asset Managers Make Moats
Oaktree, Apollo Global Management, and Blackstone have built competitive advantages out of strong brands and explicit switching costs, says Morningstar's Matt Coffina.
Jeremy Glaser: For Morningstar, I'm Jeremy Glaser. We recently initiated coverage of a number of alternative asset managers and found that many of them do possess economic moats. I'm here today with Matt Coffina--he's the editor of Morningstar StockInvestor newsletter--for an overview of the category, a discussion of why they have moats, and a look to see if any of them look attractive today.
Matt, thanks for joining me.
