Ep. 134 - Hunting for Value in Turkey with Mesut Ellialtioglu, Talas Turkey Value Fund, LP

August 12, 2020

In this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Mesut Ellialtioglu, Turkey Investment Officer of the Talas Turkey Value Fund, LP. I was introduced to Mesut by Matthew Peterson, a recent guest on our show, and I jumped at the opportunity to learn more about the investing landscape in Turkey. In this interview, Mesut provides an overview about what the capital markets have been like in Turkey - in fact, he was the first financial analyst in Turkey since the establishment of the Istanbul Stock Exchange.

We also have an open conversation about how investors should assess investing in Turkey from a geopolitical and social perspective, and I really appreciate Mesut's willingness to address some difficult topics. I hope you enjoy my chat with Mesut Ellialtioglu as he describes his hunt for value in Turkey.

Ep. 133 - Planet MicroCap Podcast: VIRTUAL EDITION with Maya Peterson, Perth Tolle and Lauren Templeton

Ep. 133 - Planet MicroCap Podcast: VIRTUAL EDITION with Maya Peterson, Perth Tolle and Lauren Templeton

August 5, 2020

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, even though we've been "Virtual" forever, this special episode was broadcast at the SNN Network Virtual Conference on August 4, 2020. Featured for the "VIRTUAL EDITION" are three of my favorite interviewees: Maya Peterson, Perth Tolle, and new to the show, Lauren Templeton. We covered everyone's investing philosophy, backgrounds, who inspired them to be investors, how we as a financial community can do better to encourage more women to invest, and an investing experience that inspired them. This was an incredible conversation and I'm thrilled for you to listen.

Ep. 132 - CFP® Marketing 101: Understanding Your Niche with Taylor Schulte, CFP, Founder and CEO of Define Financial

Ep. 132 - CFP® Marketing 101: Understanding Your Niche with Taylor Schulte, CFP, Founder and CEO of Define Financial

July 29, 2020

In this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Taylor Schulte, CFP, Founder and CEO of Define Financial. I found Taylor via his podcasts: Stay Wealthy and Experiments in Advisor Marketing, and I thought it would be interesting to understand CFA and CFP marketing better. As it shows on Define Financial's website, it is very clear, "Retirement Planning For Individuals Over Age 50" - bam, right there, in your face, this is what we do. I've been interviewing more CFA's and CFP's recently, and between my recent interviews with Anna N'Jie-Konte, and now Taylor, it seems that CFA's and CFP's need to carve out their niche - can't be all things to all people. I really enjoyed my time learning about Taylor's firm, and his insights on marketing.
