Lessons in Mutual Funds and Investments with John McConnell (Ep. 24)



Throughout the pandemic, you probably heard it countless times: “The days of living off of one job are over.” You must invest your money into either stock, bonds or mutual funds, so your money can make money. 

The next thought that takes over your mind may be, “why would I invest my money into something that I know nothing about? What if I invest $1000 in a mutual fund and the company goes bankrupt?”

In this episode, Greg DuPont is joined again by guest John McConnell, founder of McConnell Financial. This time around, they’re taking a break from discussing bonds and have now pivoted to discussing mutual funds and investments. 

Greg & John  discusses:

  • What a REIT (Real Estate Investment Trust) is 
  • How Floating Rate Funds work 
  • Why insurance companies are the safest place to invest money
  • And more!
