My guest today is Anthony Todd, the CEO of Aspect Capital, one of the most successful managed futures trend following firms. Todd co-founded Aspect in September 1997. Before that, he was with AHL.

The topic is Trend Following.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • Why prices aren’t random
  • Finding an inefficiency that the academic financial community refuses to acknowledge
  • The idea of “predictable” patterns in the market
  • The desire to know static positions
  • How crowd behavior drives trends
  • Addressing misconceptions
  • Using fundamentals in a systematic way
  • Defining Todd’s medium-term style of trend following
  • Why “it’s less about the genius of the trade and more about the repeatability of the approach”
  • How long you can be in a particular market before you give up on it
  • Client understanding of trend following drawdowns
  • The phraseology of “crisis alpha”
  • The culture that Todd has built at Aspect
  • Todd’s advice to young entrepreneurs.
