TIP333: Trend Following w/ Niels Kaastrup-Larsen
On today’s show, we have a veteran of the finance industry, Mr. Niels Kaastrup-Larsen. We discuss how simulations of trend following work together with an equities portfolio, and how models built on historical data perform in a year with a pandemic that we have never seen before.
Niels has been part of the hedge fund industry for more than 25 years. Throughout that period of time, he's implemented a trend-following approach to investing.
IN THIS EPISODE, YOU'LL LEARN:
- Why trend following has a place in any diversified portfolio?
- How rule-based strategies work in a market when you don’t have historical data
- If trend following can give you returns not affected by the low-interest-rate environment
- How to best measure risk and return
