Got MOAT? A look inside the MOAT ETF with VanEck’s Damon Gosen

iTunes – Spotify – Castbox – YouTube 

This episode of The Australian Investors Podcast features Damon Gosen from VanEck Australia. In this shorter episode, Owen Rask and Damon talk about the VanEck Vectors Morningstar Wide Moat ETF (ASX: MOAT) or “MOAT” for short.

In short, the MOAT ETF takes Morningstar’s analyst MOAT ratings (no moat, narrow, wide) and combines it with analyst valuations to create a portfolio of the most undervalued US companies with defensive business models.

Owen and Damon discuss:

  • What are MOATs?
  • How we measure a business moat?
  • Where are wide-moat companies found?
  • Valuations + moats
  • MOAT versus traditional quality or multifactor modelling
  • Portfolio construction & why companies get booted from MOAT
