    Michael Mauboussin is the Head of Consilient Research at Counterpoint Global, a $70 billion equity manager.

    Michael Mauboussin currently is the Director of Research at BlueMountain Capital, a multi-billion dollar hedge fund and asset manager.

Michael has been an Adjust Professor at Columbia Business School for 24 years.

Brad created and grew three platforms using a roll-up strategy that resulted in seven multibillion-dollar publicly traded companies.

    Ron Biscardi – Inside iConnections Global Alts

    Ron Biscardi – Inside iConnections Global Alts

    Ron Biscardi, the CEO of iConnections, whose Global Alts conference in Miami is the largest capital introduction gathering in the industry. In addition to the annual event, iConnections hosts an annual charity cap intro event and provides its technology platform to connect the industry year-round.

    Last week, I joined 6,000 industry peers in Miami at Global Alts. The main event at the conference were an incredible 15,000 one-on-one meetings between allocators and managers.

    As a side show, I grabbed Ron on the podcast stage to get a closer look at how it all comes together.

    In an industry that typically competes at every turn, iConnections is the opposite – they are the ultimate collaborators. Ron has provided the iConnections software to power most major industry events, including our Summits, and is generous in finding ways to connect people and add value.

    I’ve been an advisor to Ron and iConnections since Ron created their first charity event, Funds 4 Food, in the midst of the pandemic. It’s been great fun to watch their growth and success in the years since.

    Sanjay Ayer – Think Different and Get Better at WCM

    Sanjay Ayer – Think Different and Get Better at WCM

    Sanjay Ayer is a portfolio manager at WCM Investment Management, the Laguna-based $80 billion equity manager profiled on three popular past episodes with CEO Paul Black, President Mike Trigg, and emerging market portfolio manager Mike Tian. Sanjay joined WCM in 2007, and alongside Mike Trigg, leads the firm’s research process that follows the mantra: think different and get better.

    Our conversation is a fascinating exploration of the differentiated mindset at WCM. We discuss topics, including self-discovery, cognitive dissonance, thinking differently, getting better, compounding knowledge, reflection time, and feedback loops – all in the context of Sanjay’s path and the application of the concepts to WCM’s research process, investment examples, and business.

The real oracle.

I have found Ted’s Capital Allocators an extraordinary source of knowledge on a key topic near and dear to me. Asset Allocation. His reach across the asset allocation space is second to none. Ted is the real Oracle.
