This post is for those college students who may have an interest in finance, whether personally or as a potential career path. We recently welcomed our 2019 summer interns to the firm, and as a big fan of podcasts, I compiled for them a selection that I consider “must-listens.”
1. Charley Ellis – Multiple Ways to Win (Capital Allocators, Episode 8) A lot of this podcast talks about the rise of indexing and how that has changed the financial markets, which is important in and of itself. Just as important is hearing where Charley was able to add value in his career—because you want to pick a job or career where you can add value for at least 10 or 20 years. And what works going forward isn’t the same as what worked before.
7. Jimmy Iovine, USC This last one is not actually a podcast, but it’s my favorite graduation speech and well worth a listen. He offers advice on having a good work attitude and discusses how he adapted to a rapidly changing industry as the co-founder of Beats Electronics.
You can often find interesting podcasts shared via Twitter, which can also be a great source of news and information—though it takes some effort to wade through the noise. As a start, here are some suggested Twitter handles to follow:
