In this episode of The Australian Finance Podcast, Owen talks with ETF Securities CEO, Kris Walesby, about his journey, where ETFs came from, the Core and Satellite approach to investing, the GOLD, FANG+ and CURE ETFs, trading ETFs and more. If you're completely new to ETFs, consider going back to Kate and Owen's episode, "How to pick and choose ETFs" and "Australian Investing 101". While Kris and Owen talk a little about the fundamentals of ETFs and investing, those episodes are a good primer for this one.

Something that COVID-19 has demonstrated to us, is just how uncertain the future is and the importance of being flexible with our lives. So what does that actually look like? In this episode, Owen and Kate have a chat about the potential long-term effects that COVID-19 might have on our finances and whether it's still worth making plans. TLDR, yes, you should still make financial plans! If you don't make some financial plans now, you'll wake up in 10 years and wonder why you didn't start working on your finances 10 years earlier. Side Note - Investing is already a risky endeavour and investing in products you don't understand only compounds that risk. You certainly don't need to be an expert to get started, but you do need to lay down the groundwork.
