Meet your Equity Mates
Alec RenehanAlec developed an interest in investing after realising he was spending all that he was earning. Investing became his form of ‘forced saving’. While his first investment, Slater and Gordon (SGH), was a resounding failure he learnt a lot from that experience. He hopes to share those lessons amongst others through the podcast and help people realise that if he can make money investing, anyone can.
Bryce LeskeBryce has had an interest in the stock market since his parents encouraged him to save 50c a fortnight from the age of 5. Once he had saved $500 he bought his first stock – BKI – a Listed Investment Company (LIC), and since then hasn’t stopped. He hopes that Equity Mates can help make investing understandable and accessible. He loves the Essendon Football Club, and lives in Sydney.
