Ted Seides founded Capital Allocators to explore the processes of elite money managers. Having launched the Capital Allocators podcast in 2017, by April 2022, the show had recorded over 10 million downloads, with Barron’s, Business Insider, and Forbes each naming it among the top investing podcasts.
Having run his own multibillion-dollar hedge fund, Protégé Partners, from 2002-2015, Ted was profiled in ‘Top Hedge Fund Investors', a book authored by Larry Kochard and Cathleen Rittereiser in 2010. Ted has subsequently distilled his vast knowledge of premier investors’ strategies in his second book, ‘Capital Allocators: How the world’s elite money managers lead and invest’, published in March last year.
We discuss some of Capital Allocators' most popular episodes, including interviews with investing legends Sam Zell, Chamath Palihapitiya, and Joel Greenblatt. We finish, by unpicking Ted’s bet with Warren Buffett, where Ted aimed to demonstrate the benefits of hedge funds on institutional portfolios, pitting 5 hedge fund of funds against the performance of the S&P 500 from 2008-2017. Enjoy!
