Top Traders Podcast June 2021

Eric, CIO of Standpoint, joins Niels Kaastrup-Larsen on The Systematic Investor Podcast.

Key Takeways

  • Standpoint believes sustainable risk premia is more reliable than collecting alpha from inefficiencies.
  • Trendfollowing on a single asset class is a bad idea. Similar to a venture capital approach, using futures contracts aims to find big winners by diversifying across a wide set of opportunities.
  • Stock and bond portfolios have had many 7+ year periods of zero or negative returns over the past 120 years.
    • Try to get cognitively comfortable with the long term vision and then pick a short term process that is going to help you meet that long term vision.

    • Most of these periods started with expenses stocks or bonds, but today we have both.
