Adam Townsend is a private investor who now manages his own capital through his family office. He previously was one of the largest producers on Wall Street and has spent the last two decades investing in some of the world’s most valuable companies.
In this conversation, we discuss Wall Street in the 1990s, why Adam started a family office, how society has exchanged the Constitution for Terms of Service, what his biggest investments are right now, why he refrained from investing in Amazon, and what he means by rich people money vs poor people money.

Our second sponsor is choice, a new self-directed IRA product that I’m really excited about. If you are listening to this, you are likely part of the 7.1 million bitcoin owners who have retirement accounts with dollars in them, but not bitcoin. I was in that situation too. Now you can actually buy real Bitcoin in your retirement account. I’m talking about owning your private keys and using tax-advantaged dollars to do it too. Absolute game changer. https://www.retirewithchoice.com/pomp
