Play • 55 min

Today’s guest is Paul Kim, co-founder and CEO of Simplify Asset Management, an ETF provider focused on helping advisors build better portfolios.    

In today’s episode, Paul kicks it off by giving us an overview of Simplify and the firm’s focus on long volatility ETFs that either generate income or hedge downside risk. We discuss the ability to use options in the ETF structure, an idea Paul and his team have embraced to create convex strategies.

After looking back at Paul’s time at Pimco, we dive into some of his strategies. We touch on strategies that hedge bonds and stocks and even Simplify’s thematic health care ETF that gives 100% of the proceeds to charity.
