Macro Voices Inside the Investment Committee

IICFund manager Alex Gurevich is in the hot seat this month, pitching his “perfect trade” from 2014 long bonds and short the Euro. Alex explains why he believes this was truly a ‘perfect’ can’t lose trade, then we translate to current markets 

  • Why Alex believes there was no sane reason with any view to have been short the U.S. 10yr Treasury in 2014
  • The perfect trade: Long bonds and short the Euro, and why it worked in 2014
  • Julian and Juliette’s reactions to the trade itself and to the process question of whether ‘perfect trades’ really exist
  • Translating this to today’s markets, why Julian and Alex no longer agree completely on bond market outlook
  • Juliette teases us with a preview of a trade she got WRONG, which we’ll feature in Episode #3

male silhouette.The inaugural episode of MacroVoices INSIDE THE INVESTMENT COMMITTEE featuring Julian Brigden, Juliette Declercq and Alex Gurevich takes you inside the process professional fund managers and their advisers use to source and vet macro trading strategies. 

  • Inside the Investment Committee (IIC) is a brand new podcast format for very advanced traders and investors. The concept is to take you inside the investment committee of a hedge fund, so that you can experience the conversation between a professional hedge fund manager and his advisors and consultants, as they discuss and evaluate new macro trading strategies.
  • The inaugural episode focuses on a trade Julian Brigden first recommended to his institutional clients on July 7th, 2016. The recommended trade was to short fixed income generally, through the 5-year inflation breakevens for sophisticated fixed income traders, and through outright shorts on 5-yr and 10-yr USTs for other traders
  • Julian pitches his trade idea to the critical ears of fund manager Alex Gurevich and fellow institutional adviser Juliette Declercq, and they have plenty of comments to challenge Julian’s thinking.
  • The rationale for putting the original trade on back in the summer of 2016 is discussed first, then the conversation continues to how the UST market has evolved in the 3 years since, and where the opportunities lie today for new trades. On that point, there’s plenty of disagreement between panelists
  • Finally, Alex Gurevich gives a quick income to the pairs trade involving both the Euro currency and USTs which he’ll be pitching to the panel in episode #2.
  • This is the first “new concept” podcast on the MacroVoices Podcast Network, and listener feedback and suggestions are welcome on how to improve the format
