12 | Graham Rhodes, Investing, Emotional Resiliency and Gaming in Asia

My guest today is Graham Rhodes (@longriver_hk). Graham is Head of Research at Capital For Business Ltd., a Hong Kong-based family office.  He writes through his blog Longriver and is also an organiser of ValueAsia, a non-profit community for students of value investing.   In this conversation, we cover Graham’s background growing up between Hong Kong and New Zealand; his journey as an investor; building a more resilient investment practice; the reasons not to invest in China; why he thinks Asian gaming companies are best positioned for the future; and his experiences working at a family office.     I had a blast with this one so please enjoy my conversation with Graham Rhodes.   For the full show notes, transcript, and links to mentioned content, check out the episode page on  https://compoundingpodcast.com/ep12    ------   Show Notes: [00:00:37] - [First question] - Background [00:03:26] - Was investing always Graham’s passion?
