Listen to the latest ‘Byte Size’ podcast which features insights on the fast-moving technology sector.
In this second edition, recorded in July, we chat to Mike Seidenberg, a Portfolio Manager/Analyst who joined AllianzGI in 2009. Mike is based in San Francisco and is part of the award-winning1 Allianz Technology Trust team with Walter Price.
Mike explains the benefits of being based ‘on the ground’ in the San Francisco Bay Area, in close proximity to Silicon Valley. Ten of the Company’s leading holdings are located within fifty miles of the Allianz offices and Mike explains how this delivers a considerable advantage. He also considers what it is that creates a fertile environment for technology companies.
Also under Mike’s spotlight:
- Software-as-a-Service: how this subscription model is being adopted as the new way of accessing software.
- What’s going on with TV? Driven by the ‘Millennial Generation’, the shift to on-demand TV services appears relentless. What impact is this having on the incumbent, ‘traditional’ players?
- Corporate governance issues are affecting all market sectors; Mike mulls its impact on technology players and how much of a threat it could pose to the sector.
- The US fiscal stimulus package and how corporate tax cuts and repatriation of offshore assets could go on to influence business and consumers.
The technology sector is the single greatest contributor to global growth and forms a larger and more important part of our world with every year. Listen in now to discover the latest from the heart of Silicon Valley.
