Rooster Talk - Episode 17 - Capital Markets in Australia, What is Happening? - Paola Rojas

Rooster Talk this episode is all about the Capital markets in Australia.  Paola Rojas shares her thoughts on what is happening in the Capital Markets in Australia.

I met Paola in May 2019 and we had a great conversation which prompted me to reach out to her to speak on The Rooster Talk.  Paola works in the smallcap scene and we have a lot in common.

Paola shares her experience in the industry and gives some wise thoughts. A native of South America, it is interesting to get her view on what will be of the post COVID era.
