Learning that drives better investment decisions

Andrew Stotz on “The Culture of Things” Podcast

I was a guest on The Culture of Things (TCoT) Podcast, a platform used to discuss all things culture, leadership, and teamwork across business and sport. This opportunity has given me the chance to chat on a topic I feel very strongly about, which is ethical leadership.

My conversation with Brendan Rogers, host of The Culture of Things Podcast, concentrates on the five key values underpinning how I interact with people and the five underpinnings of how I do my work.

It was around 20 years ago that I was introduced to the code of conduct and standards of practice from the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) Society, and I have found that unethical people don’t talk to me because they know right from upfront, not to bring me any bullshit.

What works for me when building ethical behaviors and actions into my life is being direct and upfront; for example, as president of the CFA society, I have never had an ethical violation in my career. The last thing I want to do is do something that would harm that. Let’s start from that point that I believe you also want that too.

I believe that if you are loyal in your interactions with others, trustworthy, fair, confidential, and you reveal conflicts of interest, your interactions with others are going to be awesome. If you are diligent and independent in the way that you work, objective, thorough, and continually improve, you are a super rare person – and rare is valuable.

The complete interview, which unpacks how to use these 10 ethics to add value to your life, can be listened to here.
