Episode 14: Peter Cooper, Founder & Chief Investment Officer of Cooper Investors

Finding the Front

Hey everyone! And welcome to another episode of Euroz Hartleys “Finding the Front”! Our show continues to grow fast and thanks for all the support. In this brand new episode we have something a little bit different and in many ways quite special. Australia has many great fund managers but only a few have achieved the respect and success over such a long period of time as Mr Peter Cooper, the founder of Cooper Investors based in Melbourne. Whilst he won’t acknowledge it himself and shies away from this type of recognition, Peter has been referred to as an investment legend and a titan of Australian Funds Management. An opportunity to sit down with Peter for an extensive conversation and gain such deep insights is rare. Peter covers off on his background and what led him to his love of investment, the influence of the great Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, long term investing and the Cooper Investors philosophy, and the present state of the world including his observations on the rising interest rate and rising inflation environment, the Russian Ukraine conflict, China, Bitcoin, Oil. Gold, Governments, the Australian Dollar, decarbonisation and his views on active v passive investing. As they say, knowledge is no burden to carry, and this is a podcast where Peter shares his valuable perspective and one that can give some serious understanding of life as a highly regarded, long established manager and investor of money.

EP22: Peter Cooper - Building an Email Newsletter Network

Pushing Send

Peter Cooper, the founder of an email newsletter network with over 500,000 subscribers,  describes how he built his network and how it's changed over the past 10 years. He also shares his belief on how to best cultivate an audience and keep them loyal. Key Points from this Episode: `Peter saw a need for email-first communication in his niche and he got his start before someone else beat him to it. He pitched it to his current list and it grew from there. Ruby Weekly, Peter's newsletter started out as a way for him to sell his online courses and he pivoted to include sponsorships as an alternate source of income. Using Facebook's domino strategy to build a similar group of publications like JavaScript Weekly and others, as well and they all slightly overlap each other. When you need to build something, build from the well of your current audiences and lean on the audience of someone else. Building trust creates a subscriber who will then move on to your different publications. With Peter's publications, they try to provide justifications for why they have linked to certain things and as to why something is newsworthy or interesting.Decide if you want to have a specific or general personality with your newsletters. Coming up with systems for your business can help you be prepared for the unexpected.Tweetables: At the end of the day, I'm running a business that I want to keep running for 20, 30 years. So there's going to be a lot of boring time in that. It's not all going to be fun and sunshine and rainbows. @PeterC (00:32) Look at what you're doing and what's working, but then think about what those people also do, who they also mingle with, what are the kinds of, of domino effects you can bring into your thing. @PeterC (08:43)) When I need to build something, I kind of go and drink from that well that I've nurtured and made work over time. @PeterC (11:59) Software engineering is a space where you do tend to trust people's opinions more on why they're sharing news with you perhaps more than just having a fire hose of stuff in your topic space. @PeterC (19:20) Email, which originally was less intimate is now actually becoming a more intimate format in this modern kind of 2018 last Renaissance of the email newsletter. @PeterC (20:38) Links Mentioned In This Episode:Peter Cooper on LinkedInPeter Cooper on TwitterCooper PressRuby WeeklyJavaScript WeeklyJason L.
