CW 351: Investment Markets & Golf with Kevin Armstrong Formerly of ANZ Group’s Private Bank and Author of ‘Bulls, Birdies, Bogeys, & Bears’
Kevin Armstrong is the former Chairman of the ANZ Group's Regional Investment Committee and former chief investment officer for ANZ Group's private bank. He's the author of, "BULLS, BIRDIES, BOGEYS & BEARS: The Remarkable & Revealing Relationship Between Golf & Investment Markets."
Armstrong explains how the rises and falls in the fortunes of professional golfers, and the emergence and decline of major stars such as Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, reflected the ebb and flow of the stock market.
The answer provides a unique and powerful connection between golf and investment markets. The ‘pulses’ of two totally separate activities, golf and investing, have been so synchronized and connected, not just in modern times, but throughout history, and in a manner not found in any other sport?
