    Investing during a recession: Survive the bad times to thrive in good times | Sharesies

    Investing during a recession: Survive the bad times to thrive in good times | Sharesies

    This episode is all about cash. And it applies to our personal finances and the companies we’re investing in.
    Bryce and Alec explain what the definition of a recession is and how the market generally reacts.
    Basically, in a recession money dries up. Banks become less willing to lend, interest rates are up, credit risks are higher. Investors become less willing to invest as they are generally losing money 'elsewhere' ... they become more risk averse.
    This episode is brought to you by Sharesies - https://sharesies.com.au/

    Last week, Alphabet (the parent company of Google) was trading at about $2,200 USD a share ... Then it dropped to about $110 per share!

I’m becoming a Financial Advisor

These guys have been absolutely amazing in helping me understand the stock market and investing world! I recently got an entry level job at an advisory firm, and have zero background about this kind of stuff. My company is paying for me to get licensed as a Financial Advisor, and the class is shockingly difficult. Listening to this podcast has helped me so much with getting a base-level of understanding so that I can actually follow what’s going on in my class. I always use the phrase “explain it to me like I’m 5 years old” when I’m learning something new, and I feel like Wren and Bryce do an amazing job of explaining complex things in a way that I can understand. Thank you guys, and keep this podcast going please!!

Good stuff!

Ren and Bryce make it fun to learn about the basics. Big fan of their corny jokes. Their series helped me find the courage to take the first step to investing for the future

ET9247 ,

Very informative!

These two make listening to finance a blast
