    Warren Buffett, moats, castles & share market investing

    Warren Buffett, moats, castles & share market investing

    Does your company have a moat?
    Here at Rask, one of the key pillars in our investment philosophy is investing in companies with strong advantages or moats.
    A moat is a throw-back to the good ol’ days when castles (business franchises) needed a ring of water (competitive advantage) to protect them from the attack of enemy armies (competitors) who had heavy armour and weaponry.
    A moat is a feature of a business that enables it to generate excess returns on capital for a sustained period. Under the rules of capitalism, usually a competitor would enter the market and eat away at those returns.
    In this episode, Kate & Owen discuss what an investment moat is, share Morningstar’s 5 moats and companies that fall within each category, along with how to identify and stress test a company’s moat.
