Ep. 59 - Management: Focus on Corporate Governance, Compliance and Avoiding Badly Structured Financing Vehicles with Jacob Ma-Weaver, Cable Car Capital

January 10, 2018

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Jacob Ma-Weaver, Portfolio Manager at San Francisco-based investment advisor, Cable Car Capital. I had reached out to Jacob a couple months ago, and after meeting in person at the LD Micro conference in December, we thought it would be interesting to discuss Cable Car’s approach to investing. As you will hear in this episode, when it comes to his MicroCap investing strategy, the focus, and hope, is that management stresses corporate governance, avoids badly structured financing vehicles and stay within compliance. The goal for this episode is to learn more about why evaluating management is key to his MicroCap investing approach, why corporate governance is critical to this evaluation, as well as why management teams should avoid badly structured financing vehicles and to make sure issuers are conveying their stories to investors within compliance.
