The weight loss drug shaping up as a gamechanger

Glucagon-like peptide 1 — or GLP-1 — is considered by some as a wonder drug and a new weapon in the public health battle against obesity. But what are the wider implications for the investment world? Portfolio Manager Nikki Thomas is joined by three Magellan Investment Analysts: Emma Henderson, Wilson Nghe and Tracey Wahlberg. Together they discuss the investment landscape surrounding GLP-1, looking at the pitfalls and potential financial benefits for sectors from healthcare, food retailing and restaurants to fashion, exploring which parts of the consumption landscape could be winners or losers.   (Listening time: 42 mins)
