In fact, the venture was so popular we've decided to make it a regular item: In the weeks ahead I will interview one of our analysts every Wednesday and we will include the 15 minute session in the Wednesday edition of Eureka Report. This Wednesday I will get the ball rolling with head of research and income specialist James Samson in the hot seat.
Income First model portfolio update
There were no changes to the income first model portfolio last week. The portfolio continues to trade well, with recent upside in FXL and GEM providing optimism for future outperformance.
The banks continue to provide a source of volatility, but underweight holdings are in line with our objective for outperformance of the All Ordinaries accumulation index.

BTI opens the doors to expansion stage private equity investments, something the average investor generally would not have access to. Trading at a discount with a proven track record, solid management and some fresh capital from one of the best long-term investment teams in Washington H. Soul Pattinson (SOL) there is a lot to like about this new position. Read the full piece here: Saying hello to Bailador Technology Investments.
In other news we have Chris Stott joining us this week to talk about the upcoming IPO for WAM Leaders Limited. BKI Investment Company’s Share Purchase Plan is in full swing. I caught up with chief executive Tom Millner for a coffee and he was very excited about the opportunity to be able to deploy further capital into high quality businesses at attractive long term entry points.
