Australian True Crime

Alan Bond's Unnecessary Crimes

Season 1, Ep. 486

Alan Bond, "Bondy" as he was known by Prime Ministers and Aussie battlers alike, was unlike the other Australia flamboyant billionaires of the 1980s. 


He and his wife Eileen, whom he called Big Red, built their fortune from nothing in the suburbs of Perth, and they still wore their humble beginnings on their sleeves when they socialised with royalty.


Of course, it all came crashing down in those brutal post stock exchange crash days in the early nineties.


Bryce and Alec from our favourite millennial finance podcast, Equity Mates Investing, join us again on Australian True Crime to tell us all about it.
