Sam takes a deeper dive into the world of fine wine with London's OENO Group to fdiscuss their approach to getting involved in the sector. OENO offers a new approach that we have yet to see in the wine space, only drawing commissions off profits with no management fees! Sam and Derek do a quick catchup on how their new year has started so far and share why they may not be starting so great. Then Sam interviews Chief Portfolio Manager Sid McNamara-Rajeswaran & Head of Asia Ashley Ling from OENO Group. Sam and Derek circle back to talk more about wine, what Sam currently invests in for wine, and what they think of OENO's business model. Learn more about investing now here

OENO, from Ancient Greek οἶνος (oinos “wine”)

Our award-winning, luxury wine company was born out of our founders’ and owners' passion for and knowledge of the world’s most profound wine estates. Our focus is on those unique wineries that are the best-of-the-best, giving wine collectors, on-trade businesses and winelovers alike access to the world’s most sought-after and exciting new wines.

The OENO wine team is responsible for sourcing and supplying our portfolio of wines to trade and private consumers. Our unique breadth and depth of contacts across the wine world gives us insider access to many of the world’s most exciting up-and-coming wineries as well as the classics with our team having native knowledge of France, Italy, Australia, Spain, Greece and South Africa.

The wine team is headed by Justin Knock MW, former UK Director of The California Wine Institute and brand ambassador for Penfolds.

On this episode, Derek interviews Commonstock CEO David McDonough to talk about their new social media platform catered specifically to traders. They go over the growing influence of retail investors, how Commonstock helps avoid fraudulent traders and the overall market of today. Then Johnny and Derek discuss how they are using Commonstock and their differing views on the retail investor/trader strategies. 

Commonstock is a social network that amplifies the knowledge of the best investors, verified by actual track records for signal over noise. Sign up for free now at Commonstock.com

David McDonough is the founder and CEO of Commonstock. His mission is to empower retail investors by providing a community of high-quality, education-focused, and verified investor content.

David was bitten by the investing bug shortly after graduating from Trinity College. He joined an investment club and threw himself into nightly economics and finance classes. He quickly realized how important high quality analysis and market savvy were to his success and saw how closely industry professionals guarded their knowledge. Frustrated by the insular nature of the industry, David made it his mission to open up the world of verified financial information to everyone.

His passion for the intersection of finance, technology, and community has taken him from investment roles at Greenspring Associates, to technology roles Google, and, now, to founding and leading Commonstock.
