Ep. 6 | The Grand Experiment

July 25, 2022

It all began more than 25 years ago when two friends were discussing world affairs. The conversation eventually drifted to the investment arena as it normally did, since one was an avid collector of coins, antique rugs and other beautiful things, and one was a professional investor and founder of his own investment management firm. The collector, being of a keen mind and always one to propose something of interest, came up with an interesting idea.
