From Excess Returns:
In this episode we speak with Cem Karsan, the most popular guest from our first 200 episodes. But this time we changed things up and asked him to talk about how he manages his personal portfolio.
Many investors are used to building their portfolios using long-term buy and hold allocations to stocks and bonds, but Cem turns that on its head and takes a very different approach. We talk about the principles that guide his investment strategy, how he thinks about portfolio construction, his views on inflation and a lot more. For followers of Cem, we also ask for some breadcrumbs on dealer positioning at the end too.
