    Simon Karaban - Behind the ETF

    The finance industry has many moving parts, many of them hidden from the view of ordinary investors. Simon is a Senior Vice President at Singapore Exchange where he works with indices, and before that he was at S&P Dow Jones Indices. This means that he directly works in the creation of indices on which ETFs are based.


    "If you look at the composition of the Australian stock market, you'll see that it's heavily comprised of banks and resources stocks. So on any given day, you can be pretty certain that the drivers of the underlying performance of the ASX are driven by the banks or the resources stocks."

    Tony Kynaston - Know Yourself

    Tony Kynaston - Know Yourself

    Tony's been on the podcast several times and I always enjoy our chats. We started this discussion with one of my rants about how before doing anything, beginners need to understand who they are. Learning how to become an expert stock picker is not something that happens overnight. It takes years of learning, expensive experience when you will be making costly mistakes, managing risk, and dealing the emotions that are inevitably attached to money. Many beginners think that it's just a matter of being given the right "tips". It simply doesn't work that way. As Tony says: "We're trying to teach people how to fish, not give them a fish dinner every night."


    Episode Blog Post: https://www.sharesforbeginners.com/blog/tk


    TONY KYNASTON is a multi-millionaire professional investor. Thanks to the checklist system he developed, the average return on his portfolio over the last 20 years has been 19.5% pa. Tony's knowledge and calm analysis takes the guesswork (and trauma) out of share market investing.

    Quick Tip - What's an Annual General Meeting?

    Quick Tip - What's an Annual General Meeting?

    An AGM is an opportunity for regular shareholders like you and me to hold directors to account. Fiona Balzer works tirelessly organising the volunteer company monitors of the Australian Shareholders' Association.


    ASA has a dedicated team of company monitors who meet with company chairs and directors to discuss issues of importance to retail shareholders. ASA monitors prepare voting intentions, having regard to ASA's Voting and engagement guidelines, and they attend AGMs on behalf of members and retail shareholders.


    I have another podcast called AGM Watch that covers the work of these monitors. You can have a listen to see what's covered in an AGM https://www.australianshareholders.com.au/podcasts


    For more information on the advocacy work of the Association go to https://www.australianshareholders.com.au/advocacy

    Quick Tip - Buying Your First Share

    Quick Tip - Buying Your First Share

    A Quick Tip from Doug Morris from Sharesight about making your first share purchase and using it as part of your learning experience. Only invest a small amount and then read everything you can about the company. The companies he mentions are all US stocks but the same lessons go for companies on the ASX.


    "Look for a company you're familiar with, that you use on a daily basis. Is there a statement from a trained analyst saying the value of this company is x and the shares ought to be trading at y? That might be a company you should consider investing in."

    Ted Richards - Six Park Online Financial Advice

    Ted Richards - Six Park Online Financial Advice

    Ted was a guest on one of my first episodes. I wanted to chat again. In these days of DIY investing it's easy to forget that financial advice is now within the reach of smaller investors. It may not be the cheapest option but it could fast-track your investing knowledge. We discussed this in the context of recent market mania about meme stocks and "stonks".


    "Stonks are popular companies that are mostly traded by retail investors, not institutional investors. They're often companies that you and I may use a lot. They get these huge share price increases, and often without any fundamental business catalyst behind why the share price is spiked so sometimes they're referred to meme stocks, even story stocks. And there's a lot of money, that has been flooding into these and to be honest, I think a lot of the biggest reason for it is a bit of FOMO, you know, their brands or people understand share prices going up. So people fight into it and the likes of Elon Musk and Dave Portnoy have been tweeting specifically about the word stonks and that's even fueled this even more and kind of made this investing approach and I use the word investing approach loosely."
