Welcome to the A Long Time In Finance Podcast; the long view of finance, markets and money as seen by two veteran City editors, Neil Collins and Jonathan Ford. Sponsored by Briefcase.News and hosted on Reaction.
There is a bit of a general spoiler alert this week as Neil and Jonathan talk to Louis Ashworth, FT Alphaville’s resident Succession expert, about the TV melodrama. Does the financial side of the plot line make any sense? Should the family sell Waystar Royco to GoJo? How big are the children’s stakes and what are they actually worth? Is Kendall a billionaire or a messy centimillionaire? There’s also an unscheduled reference to Wolverhampton and Dudley Breweries.
