    • ...whatever takes my fancy really, it's my curiosity after all 🙂

    It is for investors and capital allocators, business owners and investment bankers, financial advisers and wealth managers, venture capitalists and angel investors, finance students and their professors... it's about the NZ finance industry.

    I speak with New Zealanders who have real insight into NZ capital markets. We talk about history, about how they got here, how they think our capital markets can be better and their views about family, politics, rugby, wine...

    It's not a lecture or a journalist's interview, just a friendly discussion about them and their views. It is about their own finance industry journey, their own thoughts—not a staid business interview.

    As an M&A Adviser and Authorised Financial Adviser, I'm in the unique position of operating on the sell-side (M&A) and the buy-side (financial advice and investment planning). The industry is fascinating and I hope I can bring out all that is interesting in this podcast.
