In today’s show, Pancham interviews Dave Zook, Investment Strategist and Founder, The Real Asset Investor.

Have you wondered how the ATM investing business works? Contrary to the popular notion, ATM’s are not owned by banks. Rather, it is private equity that owns and deploy these ATM’s. So, what is the business model for this ATM investing business? Is this a particularly attractive investment opportunity for high-earning W-2 employees who wish to save on their tax dollars? 

We hope you enjoy this show!
