Jeremy credits his dad for getting him interested in finance, talking to him about shares from when he was just nine years old and recommending he get in on the Medibank Private float in 2014.
He now wants to inspire his mates to take a similarly active interest in investing in shares and cryptocurrencies.
“I think it’s great that 2020 has led to my generation taking a more active approach to investing,” he says. “I now have a network of investing buddies to chat to about the market – that didn’t exist a year ago.”
But he does regret not buying bitcoin back in 2015.
