We were honored to spend time with Paul Olshwanger in April who hosts the CFA® Society of Dallas-Fort Worth’s Charterholder Chatter podcast. The podcast focuses on investment professionals and their insights on a variety of topics including AI, cybersecurity and risk, ESG, and more.
With so much negative news and uncertainty with current market and economic conditions around the world, you will enjoy hearing the perspective of Dhruv Maniktala, CIO at True North Advisors, who sees volatility and dislocation as opportunities in areas such as real estate private credit, and closed-end fund arbitrage. We talk about the costs and level of protection of certain hedging strategies, along with investing in private equity and energy.
