What is CONKERS’ CORNER?
Conkers’ Corner is the brainchild of @conkers3 Peter Higgins. He came up with the concept in 2012. One that is very simple yet extremely educational and beneficial for all. The participants in the Conkers’ Corner podcasts and interviews will be shrewd investors, High Net Worth Individuals, Fund Managers, Business Leaders, CEOs & CFOs.
They will share their views on investing, their individual investing style, strategies, perspectives on markets and their worst and wisest investments to date. They will not be about giving advice. They will instead, share investing knowledge, best investment practices and learning.
