“Australians have a genetic defect – this love affair with property”

Today’s episode is an extra special one as we’ve invited the principal of Motivated Money, Peter Thornhill, to give you a heads up: he’s not a huge fan of property.

…But what we do have in common are values around investments – that the ups and downs of the market can be linked to human behavior, there is no such thing as a market “crash”, and long-term investing is the surest way to tap the market’s riches.

Tune in as we talk about his insights on the difference between investing in real estate versus shares, the volatility of the market, renting your lifestyle, and more!
