Andy Simon

Investment Team

Andy’s passion for investing is palpable, and he lives and breathes the TDM investing philosophies. He is active across the portfolio, but spends significant time assisting the scaling journeys of Guzman y Gomez and Pet Circle. As the longest tenured member of the Investment Team, his leadership is leveraged across the team’s range of processes.

If you asked him the most valuable qualities any investor should possess, he would say, “Patience, thinking like a business owner, and a long-term view” — straight from the TDM playbook — and with his arid and wicked sense of humour, he’d wryly add, “Although I’d prefer that other investors don’t adopt these qualities so that we can maintain our edge.”

Away from work, Andy enjoys collecting and drinking wine, keeping fit at the gym, and playing the odd Japanese role-playing video game (the mid-1990s era was the golden age).

ANDY’S PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE INCLUDES:

VGI Partners as an investment analyst.
Macquarie Group across several investing roles.

THE VALUE HE ALIGNS MOST WITH: We Are Owners

“I strongly believe the difference between average performers and outstanding performers is having an ownership mentality. When you take the mindset of an owner, it informs everything you do.”

TDM TEAM MEMBER SINCE: August 2014
