Morgan Housel - The Psychology of Money
49 min

One of my favorite financial writers, Morgan Housel, is on the Financial Independence Podcast today!

I’m not the one conducting the interview this time though (all is explained in the episode).

Morgan’s insight into how to handle uncertainty, market crashes, and this weird stock boom that we now find ourselves in is invaluable so hope you enjoy it!

Big thanks to Gouri, Morgan, and the Bogleheads for making this happen!

When Will We Travel Again?
Learn how travel companies have adapted in times of CV-19 and what future travel trends will be. The article is here. Are you investing well for financial freedom...or not? As we live our lives, we have seen enormous money be made in real estate, technology stocks, etc. and have seen wild swings in markets before. They can feel scary at the time, but in hindsight are often tremendous opportunities for future financial success. If you only knew where to invest for the long-term, what a difference it would make, because the difference between investing $100k and earning 2% or 10% on your money over 30 years, is the difference between it growing to $181,136 or $1,744,940, an increase of over $1.5 million dollars.

Kornel Szrejber: Investor
Your Questions Answered + Real Estate Update For Canadians
Today we’re going to try something a little different in that I’m going to split today’s episode into two sections, covering two different subjects: First, we’re going to cover some questions that I’ve received from listeners of the show and from students of my investing course, so that you can benefit from the strategies and tactics too. These are specifically going to be in the area of investing. Next, we’re going to bring on my guest who is our resident mortgage and real estate expert and best-selling author, Sean Cooper. Sean will explain the real estate situation here in Canada so that you can stay informed on how real estate has been affected in these COVID times, whether you’re an existing home-owner that is concerned about the value of their home dropping due to COVID, or whether you are a renter looking to potentially buy in the future. We cover questions like What should you know? And how can you maximize your chances of getting approved for a mortgage? And whether you’re an existing or future home-owner, there have actually been some mortgage rule changes that recently took place here in Canada so you definitely want to be informed about those so that you can easily renew that mortgage when it’s time. Or, if you’re looking to buy, so that you can have a smooth stress-free process in obtaining financing for your property, instead of struggling and potentially missing out on your dream home due to financing issues, due to these new mortgage rules that recently got put into place. A Big Thanks To This Episode's Sponsor: RBC's Small Business Navigator Hub: For practical resources, advice, and offers, visit RBC's Small Business Navigator hub at Business is anything but usual these days, and entrepreneurs are looking for support that goes beyond traditional banking to successfully re-open and manage their business.

Should you do it? * Investing larger amounts of money: Buying-in all at once vs dollar-cost-averaging in. * How much to focus on dividends in your investing. * Socially responsible investing, and what to keep in mind before diving in. Real Estate and Mortgage Questions: * Let’s talk about COVID and the real estate market. Are we seeing increases in home values? * How are things if you're looking to buy vs sell? * Is it a buyer's or seller's market? * There have been some Mortgage Rule Changes recently here in Canada. Can you take us through them? * What can we do that is within our control, to maximize the chances of getting approved for a mortgage, and getting the best terms and rate? * With these record low interest rates that we’ve been seeing, many Canadians that are currently in a fixed-rate mortgage are wondering, is it worth breaking their existing mortgage, paying the cancelling fees, and then getting a new mortgage at the lower rate. Can you talk about the analysis that we should be doing to actually mathematically figure this out? * What should we consider if we’re shopping around for a home right now, in Canada?

Dr. Brian Portnoy and Josh Brown: Beyond the Orthodoxy - How Financial Pros Invest (EP.126)
Dr. Brian Portnoy and Josh Brown’s book How I Invest My Money, captures the stories and investment strategies of 25 top financial advisors. The book highlights that while there are established dogmas that tell you how and why you ought to invest, there is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ way to invest. Today we speak with Brian and Josh about the key insights that we can derive from their work. We open our conversation by exploring how they conceived and developed their book before talking about why fully rational investing is a myth. After diving into how we allocate money to solve our unique needs, Brian and Josh share how people use their portfolios to express themselves. We then discuss common investing themes in the book, including how most advisors have an aversion to debt, and how their experiences have guided their strategies and outlooks. From why we should place more value on social and human capital, we look into why financial planning has a profound impact on how you manage your investments. We touch on direct indexing, the relationship between money and happiness, and the unexpected yet incredible perspectives that came from giving advisors a license to tell their stories. Near the end of the episode, Brian and Josh reflect on how their book might have changed their views and how their work fits into their visions for the financial industry. Tune in to hear more on the usually secretive topic of how financial advisors invest their money.
