We have another phenomenal guest joining us on the podcast today. You might know Ted Seides from his famous bet with Warren Buffett or, more recently, from his widely successful Capital Allocators Podcast. Ted is what we would call a classically impressive guy, having studied at both Ivy League frontrunners Yale and Harvard and having founded Protégé Partners, an asset management and advisory firm that specializes in hedge funds. In addition, he has trained under the legendary David Swensen, and together with his experience and training, has become a big name in the investing world. On this episode, he discusses the wealth of knowledge he has gained from David, the criteria for selecting a fund manager and how to approach evaluating the performance of that manager over time. Contrary to the assumptions about his views on index funds, he explains what he believes about them and whether he thinks the market is likely to become saturated. We then get into a conversation about the investment habits of the wealthy, why relationships are so important in this business and why he would not make the same bet again. Don’t miss out on this exciting conversation with Ted Seides!
