Excess Returns Podcast - April 2021

Eric, CIO of Standpoint, joins Jack Forehand and Justin Carbonneau on an episode of their podcast, Excess Returns.

Key Takeways

  • A key to a successful portfolio is finding the balance between avoiding big declines and avoiding envy when other investments are outperforming.
  • Even though the expected return from bonds is very low right now, investors feel trapped because of the limited options outside of stocks and bonds.
  • Unfamiliar markets such as carbon emission credits futures can be very profitable when included in a portfolio.
    • It’s also been one of the best trending vehicles for a decade now.

      - Eric Crittenden, Standpoint

    • It’s not that I’m trying to be faster, smarter, or better than everyone else. I’m trying to earn that return.

      - Eric Crittenden, Standpoint
