    The Beginner Investor's Journey with Alana & Maddy | Thanks to Sharesies

    The Beginner Investor's Journey with Alana & Maddy | Thanks to Sharesies

    Over the next couple of weeks we're doing a couple of episodes chatting to the Get Started Investing community.
    This episode is proudly brought to you by Sharesies, who help you invest, how you like. Easy! Choose from thousands of companies and funds across Australia, the US, and New Zealand — all with no minimum investment.
    In this episode Bryce and Alec chat through and answer many questions from beginning investors from the Equity Mates Community, Alana and Maddy.
    All the beginner investor questions you've been thinking are answered in this episode, like, "I have money, but don’t know where to start? What’s a good amount to invest for the first time? What else do I look for in a broker? How do I know the apps are safe from frauding my details? I have money, but don’t know where to start? Should I still be investing in a ‘safe’ return given I'm coming to investing a bit later in life? What conversations to have with your teenage kids to start investing early?"

    Introducing The Dive: Will we ever see another profitable Olympics?

    Introducing The Dive: Will we ever see another profitable Olympics?

    We're dropping in a special bonus episode - our latest podcast from the Equity Mates team - The Dive. In this episode, Brisbane, Australia’s third largest city, was announced it was selected to host the 2032 Olympics. And when it happens, the eyes of the world will turn to Australia. No small amount of eyeballs either - when Tokyo hosted, the Olympics reached more than 3 billion viewers. Yet, despite all the attention… the Olympics is a terrible business proposition. A study from Oxford found that since 1960, every Olympics has run over budget, by an average of 172%. Today Sascha and Darcy ask - exactly how bad a financial decision is hosting the Olympics?
    Tell us what you think of The Dive - email us at thedive@equitymates.com.

Bel - Sunny Coast ,

Learning and enjoying it

I spend a bit of time in the car for my side gig so using that time well by listening to this podcast has been amazing - I’ve just bought an etf and an individual stock and am researching the next etf.. and am still buzzing from it. I thought I liked buying clothes & shoes but I now realise I like how it feels buying stocks so much more!

S Harvey ,

Helped me a lot on my investing journey!

This is a great, easy to listen to podcast! I have learnt lot's from these guys and enjoy the light hearted conversations, around what can traditionally be quite a dry subject!

lenrenn ,

Great for beginners!

Really enjoying the series and I’m so glad the guys kept going after 12 episodes. Easy to listen to and super interesting. They’re also so funny and engaging. I recommend if you’re new to investing to give this podcast a listen!
