My friends and family know my love for the University of Texas at Austin, even down to the color burnt orange. However, my one regret is not being a more dedicated and disciplined student. It took me a few years to mature and embrace learning something new. On this episode, I am honored to be joined by a long-time friend and professor of instruction in the finance department at the University of Texas at Austin, Sandy Leeds, who taught mostly graduate students for the first 16 years, and for the past 6 years, he has taught a class to senior undergraduate students. He has a unique skillset of articulating financial markets, monetary policy, and the intersection between the economy and the markets so that we all better understand what’s really going on.

His prior experience as an attorney and money manager brings a unique perspective when he talks to his students, authors books, or speaks about the markets. He has degrees from the University of Alabama, the University of Virginia, and the University of Texas McCombs School of Business. In addition, Sandy ran the UT MBA Investment Fund for over 12 years. Today, he shares insight into his professional journey, great teaching moments for him and his students, and how in the world he pulls for Alabama when they play Texas and expects to remain alive in Austin.
