The timing of this months episode is uncanny. Investors around the globe are faced with a challenging market environment across all asset classes. Our guest this month was famously quoted as saying: "There isn't any alpha to be had in strategies that you always feel good investing in. Being uncomfortable at times is a necessary evil." Lessons about sticking to your process really stood out in this month's interview. And, what can be trite comments on social media have a much deeper impact coming from a veteran portfolio manager navigating markets with such a significant asset base.
