2021: Year in Review

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for being a listener, friend or supporter to the show over the last year. We started the podcast in early 2020 after being inspired by Ted Seides’ ‘Capital Allocators’ podcast. We will always be grateful to the generous help Ted gave us as we navigated the unfamiliar waters of podcasting.

We initially started The Money Maze Podcast as a small side project alongside our other business and family commitments. To our delight, and even amazement, we are thrilled how it has developed into such a well-followed show, and to the spread of listeners around the world.

We also want to thank the support of our sponsors, Schroders and Bremont, who have been terrific firms to partner with.

We’ve been particularly pleased to feature a number of insightful and highly impressive women in finance on the show. In February, Simon was joined by Dame Anne Richards, CEO of Fidelity International, for a discussion on her journey and outlook on the investment management industry, and her work to encourage more women into the industry. We also have been joined by Tilly Franklin, CIO of the University of Cambridge Endowment, Tracy Blackwell, CEO of the Pension Insurance Corporation and Charlotte Thorne, Co-Founder of Capital Generation Partners. Finally, in recent months we also featured Johanna Kyrklund, the CIO of Schroders.

We’ve welcomed some titans of the finance industry, including Sir Chris Hohn, the billionaire hedge fund manager and philanthropist. Simon also interviewed Nicolai Tangen, who has the immense responsibility of administering Norway’s $1.3 trillion Pension Fund Global (the world’s largest sovereign wealth fund). And this summer, we also had the pleasure of featuring Peter Davies, Head of Developed Markets Strategy at Lansdowne Partners. Later on, we were also joined by Arjun Raghavan, CEO of Partners Capital, for another fascinating discussion.

As well as these high profile names, we welcomed an array of other distinguished leaders from venture capital, private equity and the endowment world. We were also joined by engaging and fascinating guests from a variety of other sectors, including luxury, software, music catalogues and advertising with Sir Martin Sorrell. In our recent episode, we were joined by Peter Frankopan, Professor of Global History at the University of Oxford and a bestselling author. Prior to this, we were joined by Annachiara Marcandalli of Cambridge Associates for a discussion on the investment advisory firm’s strategy, how they pick their managers and how they approach ESG issues.
