Our discussion traces Daniel’s journey through finance and some pivots along the way that saw him build businesses and investment portfolios in far flung places. We discuss what these experiences taught him about knowledge sharing, trusting others, and not taking stability and predictability for granted. We move to what he looks for in a team, who has inspired him in his career and how he drives towards sustainability and longevity in an investment operation.
