Today, I had the opportunity to share face-to-face experiences with a handful of key lieutenants at a prominent trend following firm. They also provided a great background from their then small start-up to current respected veteran status. Their track record? It extends over 30+ years. They have been around the block to say the least. How has their basic trend following philosophy remained under the radar? That was the question I kept asking myself. How can a college finance class serve any purpose if these types of trend traders are not on the syllabus? Well, it can’t.
