Daniel Want On Collapsing Collateral And Systemic Risks (Part 2)

Last week I published the first part of a conversation I had recorded with Daniel Want, the CIO at Prerequisite Capital Management.

Today I have the second part of our conversation for you. In it Daniel and I dug into:

  • The collapse in collateral in the system.
  • How derivatives pose systemic risk as high quality collateral is diminishing in the global economy and derivative exposure relative to this collateral has risen, creating counterparts risks.
  • Why and how trust is the basis for the development of high quality collateral and how this and all the other metrics Daniel measures are pointing down.
  • Daniel’s model for an investment portfolio that is both resilient AND efficient.
  • How Daniel focuses on analyzing multi-year trends in asset classes.

I invite you to listen to the second part here:
