441 | Why Great Investors Don’t Need to be Champions

Investing can be a daunting task, as it requires making definitive decisions in an uncertain and ever-changing market.  

Many people fall prey to the sirens that lure them towards investment traps, but today’s guest Michael Kemp, the author of the Ulysses Contract, has spent 35 years mastering the art of investing and avoiding these traps.  

He emphasizes the importance of staying focused on your investment goals and using history, diversification, and patience as your guide towards financial success. Great investors don’t necessarily need to be champions, but they do need to apply skill to generate market-beating returns.  

He also believes that investing is more about farms than casinos, highlighting the importance of long-term thinking and disciplined execution.
