    A peek into Buffy Ellen’s portfolio

    A peek into Buffy Ellen’s portfolio

    This is part two of our conversation with Buffy Ellen - in this episode she gives us a peek into her personal investing portfolio. She talks about a few holdings (complains she has invested in) that she’s really excited about, and that have seen great returns so far. She explains why she invested in shares (rather than a house), and where her personal KiwiSaver funds are.

    How to avoid investing in companies that test on animals.

    How to avoid investing in companies that test on animals.

    In the second episode of our green mini-series, we talk to the incredible Tara Jackson. Tara is the director of a NZ charity called NZAVS, who are trying to end animal testing in Aotearoa. You might be thinking - how does this relate to investing? There are a LOT of companies still testing on animals, so this episode will help you understand how you can avoid companies that are still implementing these practices. Even Vic (the queen of researching before making an investment), said that she’s going to add an extra layer after this conversation. If learning how to invest in a way that doesn't harm our furry friends is something you're interested in, then this ep is for you!

    Some of the animal crudely free ETF’s spoken about in this episode are: VEGN, YUMY and EATV.

    Financial success and fashion (without fu*king up the planet)!

    We are SO excited to bring you a Raising The Curve mini-series, about ALL things ethical investing. Both Vic and I are super passionate about investing in a way that grows your wealth, while also impacting the world in a positive way. In this episode we speak to Ethically Kate, an ambassador for sustainable fashion and living. She's an absolute wealth of knowledge, so combined with Vic's wealth of knowledge of investing it was a real winning combo. I learnt so much from this ep, and I know you will too! 💚

    In this episode we deep dive into the devastating Russia-Ukraine conflict through an investing and economics lens. We discuss how events like this effect our investments, as well as the overall economy. We talk about the volatility created by unforeseen 'black swan' events, what mindsets we should try to adopt in these uncertain times, and creative ways that we can help Ukraine from afar financially.
