Tim Calise - Leveling the Field | Shifting Investment Gears

Season 1, Ep. 180

Tim Calise is a business mentor, podcast host, serial entrepreneur, husband, father and avid Formula One fan. He shares his journey of investing and his experience of raising over $325 million before the age of 25. Tim talks about his early fascination with numbers, money and investing, and how his entrepreneurial spirit helped to grow a hedge fund in the early 2000s (pre-GFC). He explains the decision to liquidate the fund in 2007 due to the uncertainty of the mortgage defaults and the importance of listening to the market. We discuss the merits of long-term investing vs short-term trading, and the advantages individual investors have over professional money managers.

  • 188. Preston Yadegar - Shareholder Vote Exchange

    36:31
    Are you maximizing the value of your shareholder voting rights? It's a question many investors overlook, but it could be the key to unlocking additional income from your investments.Preston Yadegar is the founder and CEO of Shareholder Vote Exchange, the world's first marketplace for shareholder voting rights. Preston has previously worked at several investment advisors and hedge funds in trading and software engineering roles. He graduated from Boston University with a bachelor's degree in computer science and philosophy in 2020. We discuss proxy votes—what they are, how they work, and why they're often neglected by retail investors. Preston explains that while most shareholders have the right to vote, the majority don't exercise it, leading to what he terms 'rational shareholder apathy.' But should investors simply disregard these votes? Preston argues that there's value in these rights, and that selling them could benefit both the shareholder and the company.Blog post available at: https://www.stocksforbeginners.net/blog/preston-yadegar-shareholder-vote-exchangeDeep KnowIedge Investing empowers you to earn higher returns in the equity portion of your portfolio.
