Trades with cats wrote:Saw interview with 28 year old hedge fund manager who only hires ivy league history majors. He was history major started at Bridgewater and has gone on from there. So he has never seen a market where central banks aren't actively managing stock prices. Not the first time I have seen comments along those lines, I do think it is food for thought.
I read that, he says "Students of history and literature are more trained to understand the existence of multiple perspectives and to engage with them, and so can often more accurately understand the human dynamics that drive stock market flows"
maybe because he has never experienced a free supply demand market gives him an advantage as he does not expect anything else. Then of course he likes history so he knows the old style markets existed in the past.
Every so often we here from young wizards who above all know how to market themselves, a great skill they rightfully monetize. Do they outperform the benchmark?
