Play • 1 hr 46 min

Today’s guest is Bob Elliott, CEO & CIO of Unlimited Funds, which using machine learning to create products that replicate the index returns of alternative investments. Previously, Bob was the Head of Ray Dalio’s Research Team and served on the Investment Committee at Bridgewater Associates. Given the volatile macro environment today, we figured there’s no one better to have on to share his view than Bob.

In today’s episode, we touch on rates, the inflationary cycle, the strong US dollar, and how all of these shape his view of the markets and economy as we head into 2023. Then we discuss what strategies are worth looking for alpha in a world where beta is almost free, how he thinks about managers’ performance coming from luck vs. skill, and the benefit of low cost, systematic strategies.

As we wind down, we touch on Bob’s entrance into the ETF space with a great ticker, HFND.
