Ep. 121 - Investing in Emerging Markets and ‘Freedom-weighting’ with Perth Tolle, Founder of Life + Liberty Indexes

May 13, 2020

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Perth Tolle, Founder of Life + Liberty Indexes. We've had a number of guests on here talk about investing in global markets: Canada, Australia, Israel, China, etc..., and yet, we haven't really covered opportunities in Emerging Markets...until now. Enter: Perth Tolle. She is the Founder of The Life + Liberty Freedom 100 Emerging Markets Index, which is a freedom-weighted EM equity strategy that uses human and economic freedom metrics as primary factors in the investment selection process. I found her story, ETF and investment process fascinating, and I think you will too. Please enjoy!

This next episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast is a very special one for me. My guest is Maya Peterson, Author of “Early Bird: The Power of Investing Young”, Compounding Snowballs blog, and her recently released second book, “Lighthouses: Women Leading the Way in Finance.” Her story will definitely cause you to ask, well – what have you done today? But in all seriousness, she’s already so accomplished at 17, published author, investor and I’m excited to brag to my daughter one day that I got to interview Maya when she was still only in high school. I’m honored that she took the time to do the interview and share her story with you all today.

April 29, 2020

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke Garvin Jabusch, Chief Investment Officer for Green Alpha Advisors. The firm’s mission is to, “grow our clients’ capital by building portfolios that tap into the innovation-driven economy and limit exposure to major systemic risks”, according to their website. Green Alpha’s focus on investing in the Next Economy and looking for companies that are addressing systemic risks, is why I invited Garvin on to discuss their investing philosophy and thesis. He also has one of the coolest and more unique backgrounds that I’ve spoken too. For all of you who are also fans of Indiana Jones, you will too.

April 8, 2020

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Jim O’Shaughnessy, Chairman and Co-Chief Investment Officer at O’Shaughnessy Asset Management. This is a big episode for me. Simply put, Jim is a legend, and I am so grateful he took the time to do this interview with me. I honestly don’t even know how to put into words what he means to our industry: from his numerous best sellers, recognition as a pioneer in quantitative equity analysis, to founding one of the most successful investment firms out there. We recorded this on Wednesday, March 4th, and couldn’t imagine any better captain to help us navigate these volatile and abnormal waters than Jim O’Shaughnessy.

Ep. 114 - Understanding the Value of a Financial Advisor and Education with Tyrone Ross Jr., Host of the Human Advisor Podcast and Director of Community at Altruist

April 1, 2020

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Tyrone Ross Jr., Host of the Human Advisor Podcast and Director of Community at Altruist. I was introduced to Tyrone via our mutual friend and frequent guest, Tom Shaughnessy from Delphi Digital. After listening to this interview, you are going to want to run a marathon, read that book you’ve been wanting to read, start that business you’ve been thinking about forever, but in all seriousness, his passion and story are inspirational. The main takeaway from my chat with Tyrone is that he drives home the value of a financial advisor, and the importance of bringing financial education to the masses.
