    Love, The VIX Index & a Market-Timers dream?! Podcast 192

    Love, The VIX Index & a Market-Timers dream?! Podcast 192

    They suggest that we hate losing something about twice as much as we enjoy gaining something! Take 'love' for example. I remember vividly when I was unceremoniously dumped by my first girlfriend! I was about 15 at the time - and 'devastated' was not the word for how I felt! Despite my father telling me; 'Cheer up son, the next one is always better' (!!!!) I was inconsolable for a week or two.

    Did 'the next one' bring as much joy as the being dumped brought pain - we'll see! Paddy Delaney QFA RPA APA

    Managed Funds don't beat Index Funds, most of the time! Podcast 191

    When it comes to investing and choosing the best available solution, whether managed funds or passive or whatever, we like facts. We try to ensure you, dear reader, have access to facts. We abhor opaqueness and smoke-n-mirrors when it comes to you investing your future wealth. Whether it is a kids savings account, a windfall, a retirement pot, your life savings or a retirement income vehicle. Facts are the only things any of us should focus on.

    Successful Investing - Buffett Style! Podcast 190

    Successful Investing - Buffett Style! Podcast 190

    This week we share a short piece from the Oracle of Omaha, Warren Buffett.

    We learn about 'Gotrock Family', how they had it all, and how they managed to throw it away, or more accurately, to have had it taken away from them!

    I consider if this 'informed turkey' is actually voting for Christmas?!

    We also share our view on how Irish investors might avoid such disasters, and to keep more of the returns they deserve.

    Hope it helps,

    Certainty or Returns - Pick One. Podcast 188

    This week we share an investing concept that applies to investments and pensions equally. If I successfully and coherently share here what is in my head, it will hopefully help remove stress for investors as they begin, continue or end their investment journey.

Cracking Pod

Big fan of the pod. Know Paddy from our days back in Irish Life and as an advisor, I find the content top notch for both information and entertainment purposes, despite the accent!!

Wish I found this sooner

I am working my way through the podcasts but so far so good and would highly recommend this, very informative and breaks down somewhat complex financial concepts into an easy to understand format. Fair play Paddy and thanks for all of your work on this. Dermot
