In this episode, we talk with Tim Jacobson, founding member of Pearl Capital. Before starting Pearl, Tim worked with a family office and designed Pearl to add a much-needed form of diversification to their portfolio and discovered many other investors have the same need.
We talk about common mistakes investors make in evaluating their risk. We then get into the details on why VIX futures is the best instrument to hedge against equity market volatility and why the absolute level of the vix is not as important as the fluctuation in the VIX, the volatility of volatility. At the end, we also get Tim’s take on what the post-Covid-19 world looks like.
I hope you enjoyed this conversation as much as I did.
