In this episode, Anthony is joined by venture capital pioneer, Alan Patricof, to discuss his new book No Red Lights: Reflections on Life, 50 Years in Venture Capital, and Never Driving Alone. The book offers a behind-the-scenes look at the past fifty years of the industry, detailing Alan’s legendary life and career, from growing up on the Upper West Side in Manhattan to buying stock in Apple when its market valuation was only $60 million, and founding New York Magazine.
Next, Philip Palumbo, founder, CEO and chief investment officer of Palumbo Wealth Management talks with Anthony about making the leap from being a financial advisor to starting his own company, and why people have to take the jump and “believe in themselves.” They then move on to discuss the impact of the war in Ukraine, Russian sanctions and high inflation on the markets, and why there’s a time and place to look sharp!
Finally, Anthony speaks with Robin Wigglesworth, editor of FT Alphaville, about his new book Trillions: How a Band of Wall Street Renegades Invented the Index Fund and Changed Finance Forever. Robin discusses the past, present and future of index funds and the impact passive investing has had on markets around the world. He then offers his view on cryptocurrencies and predicts some of the long-term financial effects of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.
