Dan Suzuki: A Regime Shift in the Investment Cycle

Dan Suzuki, Deputy CIO at Richard Bernstein Advisors LLC, joins Real Vision managing editor Ed Harrison for a deep dive re-evaluation of portfolio asset allocations as the global economy is poised to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic economic shutdown. Suzuki suggests that what worked in the last decade – growth over value, U.S. exposure over international, large cap stocks over small cap, and investing in tech dominated companies – may not work in the coming cycle, and such allocations need to be rotated. Filmed April 7, 2021. Key Learnings: Coming out of the economic shutdowns, the market is starting to price in a much faster tightening cycle than the Fed is considering, spurring the need to re-analyze portfolio allocations. A suggested portfolio rotation includes more international exposure over U.S., small cap over large cap and mega cap companies, and a smaller allocation to technology and high-growth sectors.

The Exponential Age: Crypto's Fast and Furious Rise

Raoul Pal returns in his role as the founder of Global Macro Investor to update Real Vision members on the exponentially large role crypto is playing within his macro framework. Raoul argues that crypto is a "black hole" that is sucking in all of the world's talent and value at a speed that no one can comprehend and that its capacity to generate phenomenal returns for investors is not temporary but rather part of a durable long-term trend that is at the vanguard of what he calls "The Exponential Age." Raoul contends that since central banks have suppressed the volatility of currencies and interest rates, large "macro" on heavy swings in these variables no longer offer the opportunity they once did and that it is in the world of crypto where these outsized returns can be found.

Jeffrey Gundlach -- Waiting for the Next Big Trade (RE-RELEASE)

Jeffrey Gundlach, CEO of DoubleLine Capital, has evolved his investment style over the years, and although he is still the "bond king", increasingly he has become multi-asset with a focus on getting the macro right. In this interview with Real Vision CEO Raoul Pal, Gundlach explains how he thinks about time frames, position sizing based on asset class, and how his style changes based on whether the market is alpha or beta driven. He also provides his current outlook, arguing that there is not much opportunity in this environment and that the most important thing at the moment is managing risk while patiently waiting for the next big trade. He also touches on timely topics like the potential for a wave of insolvency, why he believes we are in the midst of The Fourth Turning, his skeptical view of bitcoin, and why he is bullish on the dollar in the short term despite his highest conviction macro view being pronounced dollar weakness.
