S03E09: The Finance Ghost : Corporate strategist by day, Investing guru by night

I’m keeping the identity of the Finance Ghost anonymous at his request. He’s a young investor with an impeccable pedigree and track record in common sense investing. His perspectives are unique and insightful. Definitely somebody worth following. In this interview we dig into his perspectives on investing and life. A thoroughly enjoyable discussion to listen to.

S03E08: Sean Ashton: Portfolio Manager at Sierra Global Fund

Sean Ashton has transitioned from #1 rated analyst, to Chief Investment Officer to global fund manager. He now runs the Mauritius based Sierra Global Fund. In this podcast, he shares his story, his approach to investing and provides some nuggets of thought leadership that are well worth listening to.

S03E07: Andrew Todd: “The Stig” of TradersCorner

Andrew Todd has been my partner at TradersCorner from the outset. His contribution is often unnoticed but hugely significant. We met in a series of strange ways in the early naughties – initially in London in 2002. It was as if some divine force guided us towards each other. We’ve worked together for 15 years and have shared many ups and downs together as our journey through the market has taken various twists and turns. This podcast is a light hearted discussion between two friends and partners who share a joint passion for the markets.

S03E06: Tom Hougaard: “It’s the best loser that wins”

Tom Hougaard is a high stakes trader. He’s been trading for his own account for 11 years after a career with various brokers in the city of London. He came from humble beginnings in Denmark and has pulled himself up by his own bootstraps. He’s a straight shooter. His views are quite different to a number of other traders I’ve interviewed. I found this a very captivating interview. You can also catch this episode on my Youtube Channel on the following link:

S03E05: Dave Lovegrove: Melbourne based sports trader and psychology graduate

I came across Dave Lovegrove by following him on Twitter @TradedWisdom. His Tweets are pure trading psychology gold! He is a psychology graduate and a sports trader in Melbourne. He agreed to an interview. Listen to this podcast to find out about sports trading and how Dave applies his psychology background to this exciting form of trading.

S03E04: Steven Goldstein: Trading coach to the Unknown Market Wizards

Steven Goldstein was formerly a proprietary trader at a number of international banks. He now coaches high level traders. Three of the traders he has coached feature in the latest book by Jack Schwager – Unknown Market Wizards. This is a fascinating discussion with somebody who truly understands high stakes trading.

S03E03: Richard Thomason: Beer by day, Trader by night. Part time trader with extraordinary results

Richard Thomason works in a major multinational brewing business by day, and trades the market part time by night. Unlike the rest of the guests on this podcast series, he does not trade professionally and does not manage any client funds. He manages his own capital and has a passion for the markets. By all accounts he is much like many of the listeners to this podcast – just a regular guy trying to trade and invest his own money. However his results are anything but regular. He’s done better than many professional asset managers over many years. This is an inspirational interview that will motivate listeners who are also navigating their way privately through the markets. Follow him on

S03E01: Joe Bassett: US based prop trader and hedge fund manager. “Forget demo accounts. Just get involved”

Joe Bassett funded his early trading account with money he earned stringing tennis rackets in the USA. An adventure lead him to South Africa where he then spent 15 years trading with AG Capital. He recently relocated back to the USA where he now runs a hedge fund. Joe says the USA is where all the action is. His advice to start out traders: “Toss paper trading in the trash. Just get involved and trade with real money to get proper experience”. Follow him on Twitter: @studtrader_ag

S02E09: Master of the small cap world. Talking with independent analyst Anthony Clark

Anthony Clark is the epitome of somebody who has pulled himself up by his own bootstraps. From very humble beginnings in Wales, he worked diligently to educate himself and get his foot into the stock broking world in London. He moved to South Africa in 1996 and has worked his way up to become the most highly regarded small-cap and mid-cap analyst in the country. He now operates as an independent analyst and investor from Cape Town. This is a fascinating discussion with a man who exudes passion and enthusiasm for his craft.
