    E124 - The AI and Cooking Connection: The Final Green Marbles Entrée (For Now)

    E124 - The AI and Cooking Connection: The Final Green Marbles Entrée (For Now)

    Hello. It’s G3 and this is a sad moment for Green Marbles. After 124 episodes, we have determined that we should go on hiatus for the time being. None of us took this decision lightly, but unfortunately, due to circumstances, we think it’s best.
    Please know that we are grateful to you for listening and supporting the podcast and for your feedback, which we always took to heart.
    Jordi and I didn’t know how things would turn out when we embarked on this journey, but I think I can speak for everyone on the Weiss team when I say that this podcast became an important, integral part of how the firm communicated ideas to the greater investment community. Some of those ideas covered straight markets topics, while others were intended to educate and to inspire, like the episode you’re about to hear which explores the connection between AI and cooking. And as usual, Jordi offers up plenty of green marbles throughout the discussion.
    So, on behalf of George Weiss, Jordi Visser, Mike Edwards, Lundy Wright, my producing partner Reem Abbassi, our Compliance Team Victoria Stearns & Catherine McCabe – who always reminded me to remind you to check important disclosures at the end of the episode – Jena Roche, Pierce Archer and Jeff Dillabough, we thank you for listening.
    And on a final note, my actual name isn’t G3. It’s Gregg Schoenberg, and I thank you as well.
    And with that, welcome and hope to meet you again.

    E123 - Brevan Howard's Rob Bogucki & The Fifth Macro Asset Class: A Crypto Odyssey

    E123 - Brevan Howard's Rob Bogucki & The Fifth Macro Asset Class: A Crypto Odyssey

    Jordi and G3 are joined by special guest Robert Bogucki, a Portfolio Manager at Brevan Howard, where he leads liquid trading for BH Digital, the firm’s digital assets business.
    Rob’s perch puts him right in the middle of the action when it comes to crypto flows, trends and narratives. He is also an old friend of Jordi’s who, as our listeners know, has a sharply defined vision for where crypto is heading.
    With a little friendly provocation by G3, these two one-time derivatives traders had the green marbles flying in no time.

    E122 - The Fed is in a Sticky Situation

    E122 - The Fed is in a Sticky Situation

    As many of you know, there is no Fed meeting this month. As such, it would be reasonable to assume that we wouldn’t have Lundy Wright on the podcast because he’s the expert we turn to when it comes to analyzing the latest meeting.
    However, as you may have noticed, a recent spat of economic numbers has put a real question mark over the prospect of rate cuts any time soon. If not flipped, the script has certainly been ruffled. So, we asked Lundy to come on and provide his latest views on where things stand and what factors he’s watching ahead of the March Fed meeting.
    Please check important disclosures at the end of the episode.
    This episode was recorded on Wednesday, February 21st after the market close.

    E120 - AI Dominated ‘23. Will ‘24 be the Year of Cybersecurity?

    E120 - AI Dominated ‘23. Will ‘24 be the Year of Cybersecurity?

    This week, Jordi and G3 welcome Sultan Meghji back to the podcast. As long-time listeners know, when Sultan is the guest, green marbles start flying everywhere.
    This episode continues in that tradition, but it focuses narrowly on cybersecurity, as Jordi and Sultan believe that cybersecurity isn’t getting the attention it deserves by the markets. In fact, while generative AI may have been the key factor driving the equity markets higher last year, 2024 is a new ball game. And cybersecurity – not LLMs – could represent the dominant narrative this year. But according to Jordi, the best way to participate in the “cyber surge” is through Bitcoin.
    Please check important disclosures at the end of the episode.

[21:46]Is the strong market performance of leading cybersecurity names a reflection of a growing concern of a cyber attack? [25:14]What is the role of decentralization, blockchain, and crypto in combatting cyber attacks? [34:05] What advice does Sultan offer on how to prevent being hacked? [42:18]
