Magnus Brandberg | The Curious Worldview Podcast #89

The following is a conversation with Magnus Brandberg, a founding partner of Gullspång Invest, a family office based in Sweden.

Gullspång are investing patient capital on a generational timeline, focusing on issues core to the transformation of society towards sustainability. Magnus has a background in renewable energy and cleantech with an MBA from Insead and a Ms.c from Uppsala.

I reached out to Magnus because of a fascinating company in his portfolio, a Swedish geothermal financing company called Base Load Capital with operations in Japan, Taiwan and Iceland. The podcast is neatly divided into three parts, each more intruiging than the last.

We discuss firstly the interesting dynamics of family offices compared to other financial vehicles, the notion of Swedish exceptionalism, and then finally, the boundless potential of geothermal energy.

It is free and the best thing you can do for me. If you are keen, chuck your email in below and then CHECK YOUR SPAM!



Magnus states that 70,000 oil & gas wells were drilled last year. The correct figure is 40,000-50,000.
