Anthony Pompliano’s Story: Lessons on Bitcoin, Life, and Investing (w/ Raoul Pal)

Anthony Pompliano, investor at Pomp Investments, joins Real Vision CEO Raoul Pal to discuss Pompliano’s early career, his investing journey, and his introduction to the Bitcoin space. Pompliano describes his background, starting with college and his time in the military up until today, and he shares some of the most important lessons he learned for life and for investing. He talks about how he launched his first fund with very little knowledge about investing and the importance of investing in yourself. Believing that in the future builders seeking capital will prefer to take investments from individuals rather than institutions, Pompliano mentions the importance of an individual’s brand awareness and how that can help push new products. Filmed on January 11, 2021.

Key Learnings: Pompliano suggests always listening to smart people when they are excited about new products or ideas, and he reflects on how he should have listened more attentively when he was first told about Bitcoin. In early-stage investing, he highlights how crucial it is to invest in smart and passionate founders as they have a lot of skin in the game and dedicate their lives to a product. In terms of investing in Bitcoin, Pomp’s fund invests primarily in its infrastructure with only a small portion allocated directly to the asset itself.
