This week, show hosts Dan Mikulskis and Mary Spencer are delighted to welcome back Senior Consultant and fund researcher at LCP, Nikki Matthews. Following a recent research piece from Nikki on Govcoins, they delve into digital currencies, including a digital currency the UK Government is looking to launch, and the implications this will have.   

Nikki’s recent Vista article on Govcoins.

We discuss: 

  • One of our most popular ever episodes was on Bitcoin. We recap on this conversation: 
    • Recent ETF launches 
    • High profile institutional investors 
    • Links to retail investors, memestocks, investor behaviour 
  • A quick explainer on government digital currencies – what are they, and why are they happening? 
  • The future of Money and the benefits of a central bank issued digital coin such as  timestamped money and stimulus payments.  
  • What else Nikki is currently researching, including how managers are positioning their portfolios and new ideas such as carbon credits.  
  • Dan’s thoughts on COP26, and his takeaways so far, including how far the private sector has come, and the sectors that are winning and losing.  

One thing to take away

Look out for the new ideas, but also think about how these new ideas affect your current ideas. 

The most underappreciated thing about investing

The power of rebalancing.
