TIP188: Mastermind Discussion 2nd Q 2018 w/ Jesse Felder & Tobias Carlisle (Business Podcast)
01:00:51

On today’s show, we have assembled our mastermind group for the 2nd quarter of 2018. Some of the major market themes we have seen since the start of the year is a substantial sell off in short and mid-term duration government bonds, with the 10 year treasury briefly hitting over 3%. Since global equity markets hit a high on 25 January 2018, they have struggled to sustain that level, at the end of April 2018, the market is still down -6% since those highs. Many are attributing the slow-down in equity growth to the inflationary impacts that are starting to be seen throughout the economy. Although these are the narratives, it’ll be interesting to see what the members of the group have to say and more importantly how they structure their picks around this environment. The members participating in today’s show is Jesse Felder (a former headgefund manager of over a billion dollar fund), Tobias Carlisle (from Carbon Beach Asset Management and the best selling author of Deep Value and the Acquires Multiple), and Stig and myself.
