    #31 - Denny Fish - A $5.4 Billion Fund, The Inflection Election & Favourite Tech Innovators

    #31 - Denny Fish - A $5.4 Billion Fund, The Inflection Election & Favourite Tech Innovators

    This week I spoke to Denny Fish, Portfolio Manager at Janus Henderson, an asset manager responsible for £272.5 billion of client money. Denny manages Janus's Global Technology and Innovation strategy, a position he’s held since January 2016, and combines those duties with his role as Head of the firm’s Technology Sector Research Team. Denny's fascination for Tech stretches back to his time in Palo Alto, having worked for cloud giant Oracle in the late 90s.
    I ask Denny where Tech stocks are headed next, with the market zeitgeist turning towards cyclicals. We speak about the innovative companies that make it into a fund that’s returned nearly 50% in the past 12 months, and Denny finishes by highlighting his favourite tech innovations that are yet to make it into the public consciousness. Enjoy the episode!

    #28 - Chris Camillo - Turning $20k Into $30 Million

    #28 - Chris Camillo - Turning $20k Into $30 Million

    Today I’m talking to Chris Camillo, Founder of Dumb Money and an investor that’s turned $20k into over $30 million, and counting.
    Having led and founded a series of successful tech and software companies, in 2018 Chris - and his two friends Dave Hanson and Jordan McLain - gave up the day-job to invest their own money, full-time. Not only have they already recorded extraordinary success, Chris and co. have pioneered a unique investment strategy, or what they call ‘Social Arbitrage’.
    Chris hasn’t stopped there, Dumb Money have chronicled every high - and low - on their eponymous YouTube channel, now a mainstay among individual investors, and of course their 52,000 subscribers.
    Chris gives us real insight into his strategy, but not only that, he identifies the advantages enjoyed by those managing their own investment portfolios, up against the financial might of institutional money managers – a breath of fresh air. Enjoy the episode!
