    Bob Elliott, Unlimited Funds – A Macro Masterclass | #458

    Today’s guest is Bob Elliott, CEO & CIO of Unlimited Funds, which using machine learning to create products that replicate the index returns of alternative investments. Previously, Bob was the Head of Ray Dalio’s Research Team and served on the Investment Committee at Bridgewater Associates. Given the volatile macro environment today, we figured there’s no one better to have on to share his view than Bob.
    In today’s episode, we touch on rates, the inflationary cycle, the strong US dollar, and how all of these shape his view of the markets and economy as we head into 2023. Then we discuss what strategies are worth looking for alpha in a world where beta is almost free, how he thinks about managers’ performance coming from luck vs. skill, and the benefit of low cost, systematic strategies.
    As we wind down, we touch on Bob’s entrance into the ETF space with a great ticker, HFND.

    Cambria Fund Profile Series – Cambria Asset Allocation ETFs (GAA) (GMOM) (TRTY)

    In today’s episode of the Cambria Fund Profile Series, Meb discusses Cambria’s Asset Allocation ETFs, the Cambria Global Asset Allocation ETF (GAA), the Cambria Global Momentum ETF (GMOM), and the Cambria Trinity ETF (TRTY).
    Meb kicks off the episode with the advantages of holistic-all-in-one asset allocation portfolios. He talks about the classic 60/40 portfolio balanced between stocks and bonds, and some of the potential drawbacks to that approach, something investors have witnessed firsthand in 2022. He discusses how investors can break out of the 60/40 model, and offers what he feels is a proper approach to building a globally diversified portfolio of assets.
    He walks through each of Cambria’s asset allocation funds, the thinking behind each, what each fund brings to the table, and the challenges each fund sets out to tackle for investors.
    All this and more in this Cambria Fund Profile Series episode, featuring Cambria’s asset allocation ETFs, (GAA), (GMOM), and (TRTY).

    Marc Cohodes on SBF, Fraud, & The FTX Death Spiral | #456

    Marc Cohodes on SBF, Fraud, & The FTX Death Spiral | #456

    Today's guest is famed short-seller Marc Cohodes. Marc has investigated and brought down some major frauds in the past, and earlier this year he set his eyes on crypto darling Sam Bankman-Fried, the founder of FTX. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you must be aware of the bankruptcy of FTX and other related crypto entities, but the bigger story may be the alleged fraud, which includes accusations of stealing billions of dollars of customer deposits, providing executives with loans up to $1 billion, and much more.
    This is a story that almost seems too insane to be true. Hindsight bias comes for us all, and while many people now say the red flags were clear as day, there were very few people criticizing or Sam & FTX before the recent couple of weeks. But on August 1 this year, Marc tweeted, “The Best Short on The Board is this fella…SBF.”
    John Ray is the new CEO & Chief Restructuring Officer for FTX and famously oversaw the liquidation of Enron. Given his decades of experience in this role, the statement he made in the recent bankruptcy filing is eye-opening and summarizes the depth of the situation: "never in my career have I seen such a complete failure of corporate controls and such a complete absence of trustworthy financial information as occurred here [at FTX].”
    Since this is a story that seems to change by the day, note that we are recording this on Monday, November 21st.
