Richard Chu: $GOCO, $GDRX and Healthcare Investing

Richard Chu is an investment analyst at Saga Partners where he seeks to find high-growth, highly asymmetric investment opportunities. How Richard ended up at Saga Partners is anything but traditional.

Chu didn’t have much investing experience after graduating college. Yet his passion for compounding wealth and knowledge boiled over into his first public investment write-up: Livongo (now, TDOC).

Richard’s first write-up caught the eyes of Joe Frankenfield at Saga Partners. This led to a conversation and eventual job for Chu at the firm. Now, Richard spends his time scouring the markets for new ideas.

I loved this conversation as we covered a lot of ground. Our focus was on a few key topics:

  • GoHealth (GOCO)
  • GoodRx (GDRX)
  • Healthcare Investing UnHealthcare (Book)
