In our extended podcast, Meb explains how his investing approach has developed over time, from when he was a biotech analyst to becoming a Quant “lite.” He describes how ETFs are developed and marketed, and we also discuss his quantitative approach to tactical asset allocation.
Meb’s recent books include The Ivy Portfolio, and Shareholder Yield: A Better Approach to Dividend Investing, and most recently, Global Value: How to Spot Bubbles, Avoid Market Crashes, and Earn Big Returns in the Stock Market.
During our rambling conversation, we touch upon behavioral economics and the misbehavior of investors, trend following, valuations, hedge funds/emerging managers, and lastly, how mathematics impacts investing.
