#363 – Rick Bookstaber, Fabric – Risk Is The Other Side Of The Coin From Opportunity

66 minutes

In episode 363, we welcome our guest, Rick Bookstaber, co-founder and Head of Risk for Fabric, which provides factor-based risk management applications for investment advisors.

 

In today’s episode, we’re talking all about risk with someone who’s held Chief Risk Officer roles at Morgan Stanley, Solomon Brothers, Bridgewater, and the University of California pension, and if that wasn’t enough, he also helped write the Volcker Rule while working for the Treasury. Rick begins the episode by walking us through his framework for assessing risk and why the three keys are leverage, liquidity, and concentration. He also shares the lessons he’s learned from surviving the 1987 crash, 2000 tech bubble, and 2008 housing crisis.

 

As we wind down, Rick shares what led him to start his newest venture and how he plans to assist advisors with risk management for client portfolios.

 

Please enjoy this episode with Fabric’s Rick Bookstaber.
