    Making Dollars and Sense: The Critical Role of Financial Literacy

    Making Dollars and Sense: The Critical Role of Financial Literacy

    As April marks Financial Literacy month, we recognize that budding investors are facing a backdrop of economic uncertainties and the ever-growing complexities of financial markets. With a staggering 78% of Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck and a significant portion of the population unable to cover unexpected expenses, understanding the basics of money management is essential for making informed decisions. But what are some steps our industry can take to help consumers be more financially literate? How are different generations impacted by this issue? What are the impacts of digital innovations on this topic? On this episode of Disruptive Forces, Dr. Renée Baker, founder of the RBI Group sits with host Anu Rajakumar to share her extensive experience and passion for empowering individuals through financial knowledge, and to showcase why this is a topic not just for April, but for all year round.

    What’s Up in the Air?

    What’s Up in the Air?

    As you may have seen in the headlines, the airline sector has seen quite their fair share of volatility recently. Since the start of COVID shutting down air travel to then returning back to pre-pandemic levels and then exceeding those levels, the airline sector has been receiving its own fair share of market turbulence. But as the aerospace market continuing to grow on a global basis, with more interest in commercial travel than ever seen before, airlines are needing more lift for takeoff. And with the supply chain still stressed, the sector’s landscape may be due for a reset. But what are their options here? And what is the path ahead? On this episode of Disruptive Forces, host Anu Rajakumar brings back Michael Barr, Senior Research Analyst covering aerospace and transportation to shed light on the evolving status of the sector and what opportunities could arise as a result of the developments happening across the industry.

    Real Estate Secondaries: A Diamond in the Rough Market?

    Real Estate Secondaries: A Diamond in the Rough Market?

    With liquidity needs continuing to be on the rise, many sophisticated investors look to the secondaries market for solutions. However, with the lower valuations in Real Estate, there may be opportunities in the Real Estate Secondaries space that might not be on the radar as a result of skepticism in the market. But where is that skepticism coming from? Could the opportunities lie in GP-Led secondary transactions more so than LP-led? And what kind of insight can fundamental analysis provide to uncovering opportunities in the space? On this episode of Disruptive Forces, Anu Rajakumar brings back Scott Koenig, Head of Real Estate Secondaries, to understand what dynamics are at play in the market environment that could allow for Real Estate Secondaries to be considered a “diamond in the rough” against today’s economic backdrop.

Quality content from a top firm

I listen to a lot of podcasts on the app, including those by Motley fool, Morningstar, and others. This podcast is by far the most informative around topics that interest me in the word of investment. They’re not overly complicated and present sound ideas from a top investment firm.
