In this episode, host Laura Dew speaks with Phillip Hudak, co-portfolio manager of the Australian Small Companies Fund at Maple-Brown Abbott, about the allure of Australian small caps and how the current market environment presents a “compelling opportunity” reminiscent of the post-Global Financial Crisis period.
