Here we are at episode 60, and my guest is Peter Tuchman, aka the ‘Most Photographed Man on Wall Street’.
Peter is a broker on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, and he’s worked there for the past 30 years. So as you could imagine, he’s seen massive shifts in the landscape of trading (especially on the floor), and has been in the thick of it for many significant market events.
During our interview, Peter shares some of his most memorable moments – reflecting on the crash of ’87, and what it was like to be there trading the Alibaba IPO. He also explains the role of a broker on the floor of the exchange today, and almost like a lesson in history; how this has changed over time. And of course, much much more.
I had a lot of fun doing this interview, Peter has an undeniable passion and excitement for markets, which you’ll pick up on straight away – so I hope you enjoy this interview.
