Claude Walker

Claude Walker is the Advisor for Motley Fool Hidden Gems. He joined the The Motley Fool as an Investment Research Analyst in October 2014, but that wasn’t the first time our members have heard from him — prior to joining the team, he was a freelance contributor to for over a year, and also created Ethical Equities. Claude’s passion for understanding markets intersects with his interest in long term sociological trends to inform a thematic approach to investing. On a company specific level, Claude Walker prefers a Warren Buffett-inspired approach of favouring companies that can already boast, or are currently developing a sustainable competitive advantage. He looks for management teams with the capital allocation skills to complement operational expertise. Prior to joining the Motley Fool, Claude worked for two different solar energy companies and graduated from the Australian National University with a Bachelor of Arts/Law (First Class Honours). More recently, he started an investing blog and assisted a boutique investment company with stock analysis. Claude’s appreciation for culture and nature have lead him to travel around the world twice (in different directions), and continue to fuel an inclination to explore new places — but even when he is appreciating culture and nature, he can’t help thinking about the next great investment idea.
