    #173 Gregory Zuckerman- Author “The Man Who Solved the Market, and how James Simons became one of the most successful investors in history.”

    #173 Gregory Zuckerman- Author “The Man Who Solved the Market, and how James Simons became one of the most successful investors in history.”

    Gregory Zuckerman is a Special Writer at The Wall Street Journal, a 20-year veteran of the paper and a three-time winner of the Gerald Loeb award — the highest honor in business journalism. 
    On this episode he discusses discovering your unique skills and using them to your advantage, how he’s developed as a writer and what it’s like covering some of the titans of business. 
    Greg’s latest book “The Man Who Solved the Market, and how James Simons became one of the most successful investors in history.” is one of Sean’s favorite books of 2019! 
    Jim Simons could be the greatest money manager of all time. To put this performance in perspective, $1 invested in the Medallion Fund from 1988-2018 would have grown to over $20,000 (net of fees) while $1 invested in the S&P 500 would have only grown to $20 over the same time period. Even a $1 investment in Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway would have only grown to $100 during this time. Enjoy this episode with Best Selling author Gregory Zuckerman!

Great Content from a Guy Who’s Accomplished a lot Himself

Most listeners don’t know Sean was an All-American lacrosse player and captain of the team at UNC Chapel Hill. He’s accomplished in many ways and knows the right questions to ask because he’s written an impressive story for himself. Credible content from a founder who has actually been there before. Rare in media these days.

Have a listen.
