Ep. 334: Correlation with Michael Covel on Trend Following Radio

Synopsis: Michael Covel opens up by discussing a piece about Benoit Mandelbrot and fractals. Covel notes the importance of taking a look at the complexity we see and taking a step back–an inspiration from Mandelbrot. Next, how are trend following returns produced? It’s important to be inspired by them, but it’s also important to understand other aspects of trend following like correlation. Today, Covel discusses the combination of a trend following investment (in this case Bernard Drury) and Warren Buffett into one portfolio. Covel discusses the two strategies and what happens specifically when you combine the two. Covel concludes by sharing a clip from David Harding regarding the importance of strategy.
