Crypto Hedge Fund Three Arrows Blows Up, Others Could Follow

CryptoA few years ago, crypto hedge funds were all the rage. As cryptocurrencies rose in value, hundreds of hedge funds specializing in digital assets launched to try and capitalize on investor demand. Some of these funds recorded double-digit gains in 2020 and 2021 as cryptocurrencies surged in value. However, this year, cryptocurrencies have been under Read More

How to overcome that very natural human behavior has led this week’s guest to substantially change his investment style, specifically to help his shareholders not make that mistake. He and his long time investing and business partner, Robert Goldstein have transitioned from a very successful focused and aggressive hedge fund approach to, most recently, a combination of passive and active.

He is Joel Greenblatt, a great value investor, financial thought leader and author of several bestselling books including The Little Book That Still Beats the Market, which is considered an investment classic. He is managing principal and Co-Chief Investment Officer of Gotham Asset Management which he co-founded in 2009 and where he co-manages hedge funds and several mutual funds using long/short strategies. Before that he co-managed an extremely concentrated hedge fund at Gotham Capital with 34% annualized returns over ten years.

In 2015 he co-founded the Gotham Index Plus fund  for institutional investors and recently introduced an investor class version for individuals. The fund combines index investing, tied to the S&P 500 with actively managed long/short strategies. The fund owns, goes long, the S&P stocks trading at the biggest discount to their value and sells short the companies trading at the greatest premium. The fund recently received a five star rating from Morningstar. It has beaten the S&P 500 by three full percentage points a year, on an annualized basis since inception, making it the number one fund in its Large Blend category which includes over a thousand other funds.

As usual, this week’s program is available to our PREMIUM subscribers immediately.  In our exclusive EXTRA feature Greenblatt will describe his next big philanthropic project to encourage job creation and reduce inequality in the United States. Greenblatt does not think small!

Thank you spending your precious time with us. Have a lovely weekend, and make the week ahead a profitable and a productive one.

Best regards,
