Season 3 ,Episode 8: Archegos Capital and Using Behavioral Finance to Protect Yourself From Yourself

With Gary Mishuris, Silver Ring Value Partners

Gary Mishuris, managing partner and chief investment officer at Boston-based Silver Ring Value Partners, joins the podcast to discuss using behavioral finance to protect against mistakes in one’s own investing process.

The conversation quickly moves to Archegos Capital and whether this is a contained event that can be a buying opportunity — or whether it constitutes systemic risk for the market in general.

Later we discuss financial literacy and how investment managers face a real conflict that prevents them from being true fiduciaries.
