#210 - Jonathan Treussard - Be Aware Of The Cracks Under Your Feet

57 minutes

In episode 210 we welcome our guest, Jonathan Treussard, Partner, and Head of Product Development at Research Affiliates.

We discuss what’s currently going on in the world around us and how rapidly things are changing. We cover the idea of “nowcasting,” and how it’s different from the type of forecasting and opinion that prevalent, often unhelpful, and sometimes downright detrimental to investment decision making.

We talk about Research Affiliate’s stance on valuations, emerging markets looking attractive, and having discipline when it comes to analyzing data to form a sensible guide to forward looking expectations. We get into factor investing, value investing’s underperformance, and the behavioral struggle investors have with it.

As we wind down, we chat ESG investing, and hear a candid take on the industry’s approach in helping investors prepare for retirement.

All this and more, including some of Jonathan’s thoughts on ESG investing.
