Financial Risk, with Nic Humphries and Johnnie Hampel

Podcast | 31 Min | 2 June, 2023

In this episode, we are introducing a theme in the Futureverse – risk.

Over the next few weeks, we will hear from an adventurer, a war correspondent, and an entrepreneur about their relationship with risk – in business, and in their lives more broadly.

And, we begin with financial risk.

What is financial risk? Why is it important to set a financial risk level? What is your financial risk level? These are questions we often assume are best avoided – many of us go through life burying our heads in the sand, giving any kind of financial risk as wide a berth as possible.

But, in investing, risk is crucial. In this episode, Y TREE’s Head of Brand and Marketing is joined by Y TREE’s Co-founder and Head of Client Relationships Johnnie Hampel and Nic Humphries, Senior Partner and Executive Chairman at Hg Capital, Europe’s largest investor in software and services, to unpack these questions and more.

From the outside, both Nic and Johnnie are individuals who seem to have a high appetite for financial risk. But, as this episode reveals, neither think of themselves as such. Both have diminished their risk level through a deep knowledge and understanding of their respective fields.

Join us for a fascinating insight into this, the most fundamental of investment principles – and if this episode prompts you to consider your own personal risk level, visit to find out more about Y TREE helps their clients ensure that they are adopting an approach to risk that fits their life and outlook.
