E84 - Luke Hallard Interview (Twitter - @7LukeHallard)
1:37:46Luke Hallard (Twitter - @7LukeHallard) is a lead advisor for 7investing. He primarily invests in technology and innovation, with a current bias towards health-tech and companies enabling the ‘work from anywhere’ economy. Luke invests in US equities, but he also has a handful of angel investments, with two successful exits to date. Although Luke’s portfolio spans many industries, a key factor his personal investments have in common is that they all seek to make the world a better, less complex place. Luke invests with his head, but his heart occasionally exercises the power of veto. Luke and Simon first met when Simon guested on the Telescope Investing podcast. Simon immediately recognised the close affinity between 7investing and the long-term growth investing strategy that Luke has successfully employed through the last eighteen years, delivering a market-beating compound growth rate in his personal portfolio of over 26% annually. Prior to joining 7investing, Luke spent 25 years as a Programme Director leading organisational change at HSBC Bank. His knowledge of conduct, financial crime risk, data privacy, sanctions screening, anti-money laundering, and payments transparency is happily fading into a hazy memory of bureaucracy and complexity. Luke holds trustee and grant panel roles with multiple UK charities in the social welfare sector. He’s married to Katrina, and they live in London with their Siberian cat, Sushi. Luke has a passion for health and physical fitness. He’s completed the London Marathon, and is currently training for a 4x4x48 challenge, running four miles every four hours for 48 hours. He dedicates his winters to skiing and snowboarding, and in a final bid to successfully land a back-flip on a board he recently attended trampoline classes. Luke is a motorcycling enthusiast and regularly tours Europe by bike, although his favourite stretches of roads are in Japan. He’s embarrassingly slow on the racetrack despite living fifteen minutes from an internationally renowned motor racing circuit, and spent his younger years volunteering as an observer with the Institute of Advanced Motorcyclists.

E81 - Bill Cynecki Interview (Twitter - @Wild_Bill32) - From $20k to $1.3m and back again
1:24:01In this episode Sam interviews Bill Cynecki (Twitter - @Wild_Bill32) After achieving returns of over 5,000% in 2020-21, Bill was a self-made millionaire before the age of 30, turning $20k into $1.3m. Bill then lost over 90% of this in 2021-22 and is now trying to make it back and help others along the way. Bill runs a very concentrated portfolio and uses leverage to try to maximise his returns. Please note this is a very high risk strategy and although it is different from the usual strategies covered on the show we believe there is a lot to learn from Bill and this interview, his openness and honesty about his failures as well as his successes make this a very insightful and interesting interview.
