OMGold! / Rich Elliot and Alisson Oliveira

10/13/2019
More
Oh...My...Gold! The ultimate hedge, the best store of value, an ancient currency, or all of the above? Rich Elliott and Alisson Oliveira work for a company called MyGold - they're gold dealers. Owning physical gold is not something that is normally recommended in the mainstream world. From an educational point of view, you may have done a degree in finance but the merits of owning physical gold are perhaps still a mystery to you - it certainly was for me. This is one of the great mysteries...

Going for Green, Getting the Rainbow! Leeanna Kohn-Hardy

10/6/2019
More
When aiming for the green, the Benjamin's, alpha, ROI etc., there's so much more you could be achieving. Do you care about the environment? Sure, we all do right - how far would you be willing to (beyond purchasing compostable plastic bags?). How much of a premium would you pay in your world in order to protect it for you and kids? Do you care about society? How do you feel about the slave-trade, child labour, pay-gaps? What would you be willing to do to play your part in reducing...

What is Invest Now?

9/29/2019
More
What's the problem? For the self-directed investor, there's a bit of work to do in order to access and manage your investments. Accounts with various banks, potentially a share-trading account, a couple of online platforms perhaps. Different credentials to recall and most annoying, AML/ CFT (compliance / ID checks) process to go through each time. What's Invest Now? It's a simple and affordable way to access multiple investment options in one place. Mike Heath joins me on a discussion that...

What is Hatch?

9/15/2019
More
In today's episode I'm catching up with Kristen Lunmen and Natalie Ferguson from Hatch, an easy and affordable online platform that can help you invest in the US Sharemarket. There's loads of innovation occuring in this space which is fantastic to see, as it serves a growing community of 'self-directed' DIY investors. This group is not currently being served up any financial advice but as this evolves, I wouldn't be surprised to see digital advice, digital platforms, and digital advisers...

Negative Interest Rates - what lurks beneath / Jeremy Couchman

9/8/2019
More
Negative interest rates – Are all our Christmas’s arriving at once, or is this a sign of something more sinister to come? What’s a negative yield curve and why as an investor, should I even care? So let’s define a couple things: What’s the OCR: Official cash rate? In short, it’s the ‘official’ interest rate set by the RNBZ (Reserve Bank of NZ) to help influence the interest rate, and exchange rate, in an attempt to regulate inflation, and foster stability in employment. When things are...

Companies, Trains and Blockchain / Dave Corbett

9/1/2019
More
Steam locomotion - one of the greatest inventions ever, led to the creation of a new type of ownership and governance structure – the limited liability company structure. Technology came first, then governance. Where are we with the current financial system? Arguably it's full of great people trying to do the right thing, but the system needs an upgrade. Technology has taken us to a new place where our current structures cannot sustain us in. Enter blockchain - it's not the magic pill, but...

Wealth Web 3.0 / Jerome Faury

8/25/2019
More
Jerome Faury from Centrality joins me today and we're discussing some of the characteristics of the new financial world we're heading into. I'm interested in this because to develop wealth (not just manage it), we need to be open to new methods. Current financial media doesn't explore this topic and financial advisers are rushing into endorse this sort of stuff yet (it's confusing as heck let's be honest, and no one's figured out how to make money promoting it either!) For some of us the...

Bitcoin Building Blocks / Andy Higgs

8/11/2019

You wouldn't think it, especially when hob-knobbing with the banking elite (as I don't!), but NZ is growing something pretty cool. Our #8 way of thinking and innovating is expressing itself in pretty unique ways - Kiwi's are solving problems using blockchain technology right under our noses, and it's fantastic. Andy Higgs, the GM of a company called Centrality, joins me today. Centrality is one of these firms at the epicentre of innovation - ground zero for web 3.0. This month I'm keen to...

Sam Blackmore, CEO and co-founder of Vimba (MyCryptoSaver)gives a unique insight into a technology that will change the world! Sam's not a nut-job - but he's an advocate for a technology that has the power to change the world - Blockchain. Blockchain had a baby called Bitcoin, right after the Global Financial Crisis in 2007 - it mysteriously came on the scene from a person calling himself 'Satoshi Nakamoto'. Bitcoin is likely the most famous of a group of crypto-currencies that have been...

Psycho / Logical Investing: Mike Taylor - Part Two

More
Psycho... or logical? How to choose your adventure when it comes to investing. Ruling out emotions or only bringing your rational mind to the table with making investment decisions, is a bit like shopping for a partner based on a list of requirements. It works great in theory until you find the one ‘that’s meant to be’. Investing is about bringing all of who you are to the markets – ignore who you are emotionally at your peril. Today we’re covering the exciting area of psychology and...

Simon Paris: Non-truths about non-banks

7/14/2019
More
Mainstream financial institutions serve the needs of the mainstream - makes sense right? What about if you're not quite as straight forward as the majority - how do you gain access to financial markets then? Non-bank lender, who are subject to less red-tape than the banks, only make up about 1% of the market in NZ. Trends in NZ banking are forcing mainstream lenders to leave more opportunities on the table. More people with aspirations of building wealth through property or business are...

Season 2, Episode 1: The Future of Money

In the first episode of season two, we're talking about the future of money. Are the current, mainstream, and orthodox ways of building wealth, fit for purpose in the new world? Will the new world be simply more of what we’ve seen already, or fundamentally different? If we think it’s the latter, shouldn’t we be open to new strategies around building wealth and more importantly, storing wealth? So on to today’s episode, what are we discussing? The future of money Libra is a new...

Welcome to the story of Emma - it's not the full story, but a part of it... It's taken two properties to finally get to where Emma, her hubby, and their daughter, are happy. Living peacefully among the kanuka's, they love their home - it's a smart home too because it pays them to be there via the self-contained flat that's rented out. Even though there's a mortgage, there's no net mortgage payment to contend with. Emma's smart like this - she didn't read about how to do this, she simply...

The Kiwi Fintech Accelerator is an intensive 3-month long programme responsible for the birth of many new start-ups such as Hnry (EPISODE 41)and Sharesies (EPISODE 10).

Good as Gold / PART TWO

The great thing about The Matrix (the movie), is that it forces you to consider the possibility of a reality which is contrary to our assumptions. What gives us ‘peace’ though around this, is knowing that ultimately, it’s fiction. There are startling parallels you can draw from this movie into a few realms though, with money being one of them. We believe, and we mostly have a high level of faith that the currency we use is reliable – my $100 note is as good as yours, and as at today I know...
