Can you support regenerative economies, community-controlled investment, and still earn a reasonable return?
What would you do if you suddenly had $2 million? Take it easy? Retire early? Maybe buy that custom vintage car you’ve been eyeing for years? None of the Renegade Capital crew have had to grapple with that particular question, so we decided to talk to someone who has. In this episode, we talk with Kate Poole, whose journey from inheriting a trust fund to becoming an “anti-capitalist” wealth manager provides a totally unique perspective on how people with means can leverage their capital.
Kate Poole takes a unique perspective on what it takes to build a just economy. With her business partner, Tiffany Brown, she co-founded Chordata Capital, an “anti-capitalist” wealth management firm that supports clients in redistributing rather than continuing to accumulate wealth. With a background in organizing and agitating in the impact investing field, Kate partners with young people with inherited wealth to transform their investment portfolios. Kate also co-founded Regenerative Finance in 2014 to organize other inheritors to shift control of capital to frontline communities; has worked in the local investing ecosystem since 2009; has been a member of Resource Generation since 2013; and now, with much thanks from us, is an official Renegade Capital alumni.
A renegade not only listens but acts. We've consolidated a few tips from this episode to help you invest in local communities.
