This beginner's course will help you understand risk and how can start managing your own money, by investing in a diversified portfolio through an automated investment service.
As an asset manager for a family portfolio and tech entrepreneur, a lot of folks come up to me asking for advice about where to invest. This course is built to start you off on that journey: to help identify and make sense of the new opportunities and platforms that are dramatically changing the way investing is done.
To do this, I start by articulating risk to get an understanding of your risk profile and tolerance. Armed with this information, we then dive into each of the major platforms in ETFs and bonds – each of which I've tested or used personally for my own investments.
I will teach you the difference between debt & equity, help you find out what portfolio is right for you, and educate you on retirement plans. I believe that everyone should understand how to invest their own money and understand the risks in doing so. I want to empower you to make your own investment decisions based on what works best for you.
The online platforms taught here, are about the part of the democratization that's happening in investing. What you invest in should always be YOUR decision, and in this course I'm here to provide you with the necessary education to give you that confidence.
Hi! I'm your host Mesh 👋 I'm an investor with a passion for making business education straightforward and entertaining.
I didn't study business or finance in school — and I never worked on Wall Street — but I’ve been a student of investing since the height of the financial crisis in 2008. I was lucky to learn from incredible people who shared their knowledge with me.
In 2016, I co-founded Mark 2 Capital (Mk2C), an alternative credit fund that invests in new financial technology companies. I've made personal investments in companies including Teachable, Latch, Carta, HiFi, and Upstack, and am also an LP in funds including Notation Capital, Electric Capital, Maple VC, and Blocktower Capital.
I believe financial literacy should be a right. So, I started Talk Money to help educate others; demystifying the world of finance, and breaking down confusing business concepts. There’s a lot of noise and complicated information out there: let’s cut through it together!
