Shawn O'Malley - We Study Markets | Vanity Investing

When too much Shawn is never enough. Here's part 2 of our chat. The highlight for me in this episode is the trap of vanity investing. It's when people talk about their investments as a way of showing how sophisticated they are. It's about bragging rights and commanding authority over the mere mortals who only want to invest in the boring old S&P500. Shawn likens it to the bores who only want to talk about their own importance in the workplace. Those will real influence are likely to not show off.

We Study Markets is part of The Investor's Podcast Network, the home of the hugely popular We Study Billionaires podcast.

This is part 2 of a 2 part interview with Shawn. Here's a link to the previous episode:
