In episode 372, we welcome our guest Chas Cocke, founder of LB Partners and previously one of the founding partners of Investure, a firm that started the outsourced CIO model that’s popular today.

In today’s episode, we begin by discussing Chas’ time at Investure and what it was like to work with the top money managers in the world. He covers some trends he sees in the institutional and hedge fund space around both fees and the convergence of public and private markets.

Then we get into Chas’ newest venture, which, as he puts it, will invest in anything, anywhere, unconstrained. We get into its unique structure and talk some of the areas he’s already put money to work. We even discuss his partnership with this coming Wednesday’s guest to launch the IO Digital Infrastructure ETF, ticker BYTE.

In episode 371, we welcome our guest, Frank Holmes, the CEO of not one but two companies – U.S. Global Investors, an investment manager with both ETFs and mutual funds, and HIVE Blockchain, the first cryptocurrency mining company to go public.

In today’s episode, we’re talking ETFs and crypto! Frank starts by sharing what piqued his interest in crypto and why he chose to go down the mining path instead of pursuing a Bitcoin ETF. He offers some macro perspective on crypto and how it differs from gold. Then we turn to the ETF space and hear about Frank’s hit ETF, JETS, which focuses on the airline industry and caught fire in 2020 after the March decline as retail interest skyrocketed.

Be sure to stick around until the end when Frank shares the thesis behind his newest ETF around the marine shipping and air freight industries.

In episode 370, we welcome our guest, Ashley Flucas, founder of Flucas Ventures and General Counsel and Partner for a real estate finance fund.

In today’s episode, we hear how someone with a capital markets law background transitioned into venture investing. Ashley walks us through her path to break in to the world of venture capital, first by participating in deals on AngelList, then building out her own syndicate. She shares how COVID accelerated the transition, allowing her to capitalize on both the lack of capital and shift to a remote world. She shares her investment philosophy, why she benefits from a non-tech background, and what it’s like writing checks while being based in Florida.

In episode 369, we welcome our guest, Maya Horgan Famodu, founder of Ingressive Capital, a VC fund focused on early stage African tech, and believed to be the youngest person to launch a tech fund in Sub-Saharan Africa.

 

In today’s episode, we start with Maya’s journey to the African tech scene.   She lays out the factors behind the recent explosion in funding that the continent has recently seen - strong demographics, high growth, and rapid tech adoption.  Then we get into some companies she’s invested in, specifically a lot of “X for Africa,” the African equivalent of companies like Stripe, Robinhood, Flexport, and Plaid. And we even touch on 54gene, which we highlighted in episode 345.  

 

As we wind down, we hear what lies ahead for Maya now that she just finished raising her second fund of $50 million.

In episode 368, we welcome our guests, Corey Hoffstein, CIO and co-founder of Newfound Research, and Rodrigo Gordillo, President and PM at ReSolve Asset Management

In today’s episode, we’re talking about return stacking! Corey and Rodrigo joined forces to try and tackle the issue of how to generate returns in an environment with stretched equity and fixed income valuations. We hear how using a little bit of leverage to the traditional 60/40 portfolio can provide more than one dollar of exposure for every dollar invested. Our guests then walk us through what strategies investors can stack on top of their 60/40 portfolio, including global systematic macro, trend following, and tail hedging, and what that does to the risk/return profile.

Be sure to stick around until the end to hear stories about what life is like for people who have actually lived in an inflationary environment.

Please enjoy this episode with Newfound Research’s Corey Hoffstein and ReSolve Asset Management’s Rodrigo Gordillo.

In episode 367, we welcome our guest, Robert Lawson, director of the Bridwell Institute for Economic Freedom at (SMU) and author of Socialism Sucks: Two Economists Drink Their Way Through the Unfree World.

In today’s episode, we’re talking about some of my favorite topics – capitalism, travel, and beer! Robert traveled around the world to visit socialist countries and let’s just say the crappy beer wasn’t the only thing he didn’t like about the trip.   We start by defining what true socialism is, why Sweden isn’t actually a socialist country, and look at Venezuela, Cuba, and North Korea to see what true socialism looks like in the world today. Surprise, surprise: it’s not good.  Next, we discuss why socialism has a false utopian vision for the world and the reasons why this terrible idea just won’t go away.

As we wind down, we chat about some current topics in the U.S., including UBI, student-loan forgiveness, and the lack of financial education in schools.

In episode 366, we welcome our guest, Darius Dale, founder and CEO of 42 Macro, which specializes in macro risk management through the dual lenses of asset allocation and portfolio construction.

 

In today’s episode, we’re talking all things macro! Darius walks us through his framework for analyzing macro regimes and then uses it to assess where we stand today. We touch on all the hot macro topics – whether inflation is transitory, the impact of supply chain issues, and how the rise of populism in the U.S. will impact markets.

 

Be sure to stick around until the end of the episode to hear what Darius says is the most important chart in macro today.

 

Darius was kind enough to put together a comprehensive deck, so be sure to either check out the episode on YouTube to see him walk through the slides, or click here to follow along yourself.

Then we discuss Nancy’s IVOL product, which has over $3.5 billion in assets in less than three years, and how it may serve as a valuable portfolio diversifier.  We hear what she thinks about the recent Fed commentary, what the yield curve is pricing in today, and what her thoughts are around inflation as we wind down 2021.
