    Investing Styles: How Equity Mates Invest

    In the third of our GSI chapters, we start putting the elements together. We’ve spoken about passive and active investing styles, and you can probably identify what kind of investor you are now. We've gone through characteristics that define the different styles of active investing, and now we want to pull it all together, to lay out some practical steps and actions so you can just step into your investing style.

    Investing Styles: Who Am I? Find what works for you

    Investing Styles: Who Am I? Find what works for you

    This is the second of our three part series on Investing Styles! In Part 1 - we covered what we mean when we discuss ‘investing styles’, and what to weigh up when deciding between active v passive. What we discovered, is that decision is easy - buy and hold market indexes, managed funds or broad thematic ETFs. If you've decided you might be active however, then there is so much choice around the different styles you could be pursuing... so in this episode Alec and Bryce look at the different styles of active investing available - through a game!

    Melissa Browne - How to Unf*ck Your Finances

    Melissa Browne is not only an accountant, ex-financial advisor and entrepreneur, but also a financial wellness advocate, financial coach and occasional therapist, alongside finding work as an educator, speaker, advisor and an owner of multiple businesses.
    She's been a multi-award winning serial entrepreneur: as co-founder of The Money Barre, a financial planning firm for Gen X and Y; the co-founder & Director of Business at Thinkers.inq, an innovative long day Preschool based on creative and critical thinking; and until 2019 (when Melissa sold the business to an ASX listed accounting firm), she was CEO of A&TA, an award winning Accounting Firm.
    Today she joins Alec and Bryce to talk about investing, financial advisors, key tips and lessons, and ask Melissa to talk about the memories and lessons of her first investment, her approach to 'financial adulting', and where to start when you finally decided to sort your money out.

    Can You Invest While In Debt?

    Can You Invest While In Debt?

    One question we get asked all the time at Equity Mates is, should I be investing if I have a lot of other financial commitments, including debt? In short, our answer is yes. Why and how? We answer that in this podcast.
    We cover all the questions you should be asking yourself - including the conundrum between paying off debt and starting an investment portfolio - what should come first? We also talk about understanding the type of debt you have, and the effect of interest rates on servicing your loan.

Miles of investing ,

Just what I needed

Fantastic podcast with quality content on the basics of investing. I have been wanting to invest for a number of years but have never understood how and also intimidated by jargon and risk. These two guys break all that down to easy listening and also provide humour along the way.

AlenBud ,

It all started here for me….

this is it, if you want to know the in and out of investing in the stock market this is for you, two people having a conversation and explaining the whole thing from A to Z in an easy to understand and listen to way. Top Notch for us beginers.
