guest bio.

Mesh Lakhani is an investor with a demonstrated history of working across multiple asset classes. He founded Mark 2 Capital in 2016 and has grown it tremendously since. They are managing approximately $200 million in assets across multiple investment vehicles.

For Mesh, it did not always start out this way. After graduating the University of Virginia, he decided to take a detour into the world of finance, leaving his passion for music behind. The whole scene was a huge learning curve and from not having any prior knowledge, he managed to build his foundations as a major investor from the ground up. His passion for learning put him in a critical position as the someone who has experienced the world of finance from both sides of the table. This prompted him to start his very own podcast, Talk Money.

As the host of Talk Money, Mesh is dedicated to educating the public on business, finance, markets, & investing through compelling story telling and relatable topic. His goal is to bring the intimidating space of the financial world and jargon into closer proximity for masses so that we can actually understand how money works!
