Introducing “At The Money”



I’m very excited to tell you about my new podcast: At the Money.

Each week, we are going to spend 10 minutes diving into a specific topic that affects you and your money: Acquiring it, spending it, and most of all, investing it.

My experience as an investor is just the starting point for ATM: I am tapping into a network of experts I have developed over decades across a wide range of fields to discuss everything from taxes to portfolio construction, differences between skill and luck, how to build a bond ladder, and why it matters so much to manage your own behavior as an investor.

When we launched Masters in Business in 2014, there were no long-form interviews with people in finance discussing their careers and investing philosophies. That innovation helped to raise the bar for financial podcasts. So when Bloomberg asked me about creating another podcast, my response was different – short-form investment literacy discussions with financial experts.

Originally, At the Money was exclusive to Apple Premium podcasts; now, its out from behind the paywall, and available where ever you find your favorite podcasts: YouTube, Spotify, Bloomberg, and Apple Podcasts. New episodes drop each week on Wednesdays in the Masters in Business feed, and on the web  AtThe.Money (@ “At The Dot Money”). All prior At the Money shows are archived here.

I am incredibly excited about At the Money – I think you are going to love it. Check out the first few episodes below:
