Trailer: Series 2 of 2023: The Golden Thread
Between Series 1 and series 2 of 2023, we kicked off a brand new focus series – the Love Series – in celebration of love in February 2023. This had a great response – reminding us of what made people human. It sent one listener back to his old photo album to remind himself of his showjumping days, and others felt motivated to take up hobbies again.
Now we are back to our main series focused on investment professionals but love runs through it like a golden thread. Love, discipline, lessons from parents. Our guests include a former college football player, who spent time working as a prison guard before returning to university and ultimately entering the investment industry, an expert on music valuation, multiple ESG and pensions specialists and founders of fund companies – large and small.
