Angela Chang Newell is a portfolio manager at Social Capital. As many of our listeners will know, Social Capital is the brainchild of Chamath Palihapitiya – a billionaire and Twitter influencer with over 1.4 million followers.
Earlier this year Angela made it into an exclusive group, Chamath and Social Capital’s Emerging Managers class of 2021 – an industry-first initiative that has sought investors, of all backgrounds, who believe they can develop differentiated strategies to generate outsized returns. Social Capital has funded their portfolio managers with an initial capital base, with the aim of scaling that over time.

Enjoy the interview!
