Play • 44 min

In our inaugural episode of When Markets Break, David Greely welcomes Beau Taylor, J.P. Morgan's Former Global Head of Energy Sales & Trading to the SmarterMarkets™ studio to recount his experience in the U.S. Natural Gas market following Hurricane Katrina. Together they explore the risk miscalculations, market conditions, and elements of human nature that led to one of the largest hedge fund collapses on record. 

In the episode, Greely and Taylor revisit how a multi-strategy hedge fund transformed into one big bet on winter natural gas prices, why their collapse didn’t lead to wider systematic distress in the financial market, and what learnings we can apply to better manage volatility in today’s LNG markets.
