The Oldest vs The Newest Asset: Who Wins?

Since I decided to move away from my corporate career to focus more on my business and investments, I am often asked by friends and former colleagues where they should invest their money. My answer always disappoints them.

Investing is less about picking winners and more about risk management. The…


The Uncomfortable Road To Financial Success

In the financial independence world, lots of emphasis is placed on achieving our specific FI number (i.e. enough money\assets to live off comfortably for the rest of our life), but very little attention is placed on the skills necessary to get us (and keep us) there.

Today, I want to…


Why a forward-only vision of scientific progress is harming our planet

A couple of weeks ago, this article in The Economist caught my attention.

It announced the opening of the largest carbon removal plant in the world, just outside of Reykjavik in Iceland. …


Why Bitcoin is destined to implode, although nobody knows when

I originally published parts of this piece on LinkedIn in September 2017, while Bitcoin price was less than $5,000. In the following four years Bitcoin’s price rose tenfold and, I confess, I too have invested in cryptocurrencies during that time (although I have now liquidated all my positions).

What I Learned From Losing £10,000 in Junk Bonds

I have always been interested in finding ways for my money to generate a return, and I have found the idea both amazing and almost immoral.

I can see why Einstein described compound interest as the 8th wonder of the world, and, at the same time, I can completely understand…


A Review of All-Season Portfolios
