How Did John Maynard Keynes Perform As An Investor?

David Chambers says that the story of Keynes the investor was not “one of unqualified success,” adding that “for the first decade, [Keynes] kind of matched the market, and for a period of three years in the late 1920s, he actually was substantially behind the market.”

Chambers shares his insights about John Maynard Keynes the investor from his article “The British Origins of the US Endowment Model,” co-authored with Elroy Dimson

Chambers talked with Barbara Petitt, CFA, head of journal publications at CFA Institute, about the article.
