  • Asset allocation

    Asset allocation

    Asset allocation does NOT work. It does not drive portfolio returns or volatility. The "experts" are WRONG and their so-called "advice" is entirely the cause of underfunded retirement systems. It's simple to prove for all goals, market scenarios and…

  • Portable alpha?

    Portable alpha?

    Portable alpha? Why "port" NEW sources of return onto OLD sources of return? In down markets any positive alpha gets swamped by negative beta. It also diverts attention from what investors really need: consistent absolute returns from a blended range…

  • Economics Nobel prize

    Economics Nobel prize

    Nobel prize? Pricing options correctly is hard but finding dumb "prizes" is easy. The 1997 award to Myron Scholes and Robert Merton and that is with the bar set very low in a dismal field that had no TRUE Nobel. The Black-Scholes "formula" has led to…

  • Top hedge fund

    Top hedge fund

    Who is the world's best investor? Who ran the top performing hedge fund? When do past returns predict future performance? Defining "best" as highest risk adjusted alpha after deducting all style premia and beta factors, the greatest ever hedge fund m…

  • Hedge Fund Test

    Hedge Fund Test

    Hedge Fund Test? The HFT separates rare alpha stars from the hordes of risk craving beta bandits. Thousands pass the easy CFA, CAIA but few will ever attain the HFT. Mode score is zero but true hedge fund managers all scored 100%. It takes rare abili…

  • Warren Buffett alpha

    Warren Buffett alpha

    Warren Buffett prudently invests 99% of his wealth in absolute return strategies like most risk averse savers. Leverage, arbitrage, derivatives, event-driven, opportunistic, special situations and macro strategies have driven ALL his returns since 19…

  • Sports bet hedge fund

    Sports bet hedge fund

    Sports results don't correlate with economic factors unlike stocks, bonds, commodities and currencies. Sports bets also offer reliable arbitrages and consistent mispricings. Diversify PROPERLY with new sources of return. Most people bet on stocks or…

  • Data science is money

    Data science is money

    Time is not money. Technology is money. Information is money. Technology applied to information - data science - is money squared. The best way to predict the future is to invest in it. The only certainty is change. Good investors are inventing bette…

  • Emerging markets

    Emerging markets

    Highest stock market returns will come from: NOT WHERE YOU LIVE. National bias and portfolio patriotism costs investors so much. Always underweight or avoid investing in your "home" country. You have enough exposure just living there. World's top pe…

  • Passive index fad

    Passive index fad

    Passive fad will end badly. Manias ALWAYS do. Dumb beta index funds are just HIGH COST, HIGH RISK, low frequency trading strategies. Do you really think the stock pickers that ACTIVELY manage the S&P 1500 or Russell 2000 are the best? Why pay outrage…
