Momentum launches new financial services podcast

Momentum is pleased to announce the launch of a new weekly podcast that explores the people, products and strategies shaping Australia’s financial services industry.

Senior journalist at Momentum, James Mitchell is the host of Relative Return on the Financial Services Podcast Network.

Relative Return is the latest addition to Momentum Media’s Financial Services Podcast Network, the gateway to Australia’s leading financial services shows including Relative Return, InvestorDaily Uncut, The IFA Show and The SMSF Adviser Show.

The first episode of Relative Return is now live and features host and senior journalist James Mitchell discussing the vision and format of the show with Phil Tarrant, managing editor of financial services at Momentum Media.

“We’ve really enjoyed the process of creating a new podcast for our audience,” Mr Tarrant said.

“Podcasting is a great medium for connecting with people and getting behind the stories making headlines on Investor Daily, Money Management, ifa and SMSF Adviser,” he said.

“Relative Return will put colour behind the commentary and share the untold stories about the many moving parts of Australia’s wealth management industry.”

New episodes will be released every Thursday and feature exclusive interviews with investment managers, chief economists, licensees and financial advisers.

Host James Mitchell will also be joined at times by Money Management editor Laura Dew, senior reporter Charbel Kadib, and ifa/InvestorDaily editor Maja Garaca Djurdjevic to discuss major stories impacting the Australian financial services community.

This week’s episode, to be released on Thursday, 4 May, will see host James Mitchell sit down with Piers Bolger, chief investment officer at Infinity Asset Management, to discuss the role active management will play in a new era of rising interest rates.

From his early days as a cadet journalist to his role as head of research and investments at UBS during the financial crisis, the 40-minute episode is packed with exclusive anecdotes from one of Australia’s most experienced investment managers.
