Rusty the Rockstar Fundie on the Massive Issue No One Talks About

A few weeks ago we had the privilege of sitting down with Russell Delroy of Cottesloe-based Nero Resource Fund. Nero’s performance is stellar. But you don’t need us to tell you to pay attention when Rusty speaks.


In this conversation, we talked about one of the biggest issues plaguing our industry – to the detriment of shareholders. That issue is “misalignments” as described by Rusty between management/boards and shareholders. This conversation is riveting as Rusty reveals stories over his journey and some of the “soft issues” that can get in the way of shareholder returns.
