  • Alec Renehan

    Alec 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 Leske

    Bryce 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.


  • Become a Superhero | Take control of yours

    Bryce and Alec look at some of the stats that surprise them, think about how they might optimise their own super, passive fees that might be eating away at your capacity to earn serious money, and take a look at the offering from today's sponsor - Superhero.

  • It’s time Australians wake up to their super | John Winters, Superhero

    As part of our Super Saturdays series, Alec and Bryce sit down with John Winters - the CEO and Co-founder of Superhero. John is super passionate about the superannuation space, and he talks to Alec and Bryce about why that is, the low engagement Australians have with their super, and how he thinks Superhero's new product can radically change this. The statistics show that John isn't wrong - 17% of Australians do not know what type of fund their superannuation is with! So give this a listen, and help us give you the tools to wake up, and feel like you can take more control of your super.
