The Value Perspective with Annie Duke 3.0

November 28, 2022

Believe it or not, it’s our third birthday here on the Value Perspective podcast. To celebrate, we are delighted to welcome back Annie Duke, our first guest when we kicked off this whole project three years ago. Coincidentally, this is also her third appearance on the podcast. We caught up with Annie to discuss her newest book Quit – The Power of Knowing When to Walk Away. Our wide ranging conversation covers: why it’s so difficult to walk away; why quitting is a powerful tool for any decision maker; the difficulties of thinking in expected values over time; what age children can be taught the importance of quitting; and to contextualise all of this, what sorts of tool, if any, could help Putin in quitting from what looks like a very bad decision. Enjoy!

November 14, 2022

This week we have Ian Leslie on the show. Ian started his career in advertising but now writes and presents about human behaviour including psychology, culture, tech and business for publications like The New Statesman, The Economist, The Guardian and The FT. Most recently he wrote a book called Conflicted: Why Arguments Are Tearing Us Apart and How They Can Bring Us Together. He is also the author of the Substack The Ruffian where he covers everything from politics to decision making. We were delighted to chat with him about some of the topics covered in his book including: why being passive aggressive is the worst behaviour with no outcome; the power of humour in dealing with conflict; low versus high contact societies; devil’s advocates and their weaknesses; and the answer to the question on all of our minds, what is the most important rule in dealing with conflict. Enjoy!

The Value Perspective with Dan Mikulskis

Our guest this week is Dan Mikulskis. Dan is an investment partner at Lane Clark & Peacock or LCP. He is also the co-host of a very good podcast called Investment Uncut. He couples this work with a fortnightly newsletter with commentary on what has been happening in markets around the world, which you can subscribe to via LinkedIn. Dan is also particularly well versed with the LDI or liability driven investment crisis and why it caught the pension funds off-guard. It can be a technical topic, so if you would like to understand more of what’s happened, check out his Twitter account @danmikulskis. In this episode we cover topics including: what can be learnt from co-hosting a podcast which can then be applied to the decision making process; accounting for one’s own biases when meeting fund managers; how Dan goes about helping clients deal with uncertainty; the building of models, what makes a good model and when, if at all, one should overrule a model with qualitative insights; and finally how do you learn the right lessons from your process and not learn the wrong lessons.  Enjoy!

The Value Perspective with Bethany McLean

We’re very excited about our guest this week on the Value Perspective podcast. Bethany McLean is a financial journalist who was contacted by the short seller Jim Chanos when working for Fortune Magazine and advised to look into a company called Enron. Bethany’s column entitled ‘Is Enron overpriced?’ was published in 2001, starting the unravelling of the company and she went on to write a book entitled The Smartest Guys in the Room: The Amazing Rise and Scandalous Fall of Enron. She is also author of the titles Shaky Ground: The Strange Saga of the US Mortgage Giants, All the Devils are Here: The Hidden History of the Financial Crisis, and Saudi America: The Truth About Fracking and How It’s Changing the World. Bethany has also been working at Vanity Fair as a contributor for over a decade now and has pretty much covered all of the famous corporate frauds for the last twenty years. Her background is as a mathematician and she started her career at Goldman Sachs as part of their M&A department. Our conversation references a previous Value Perspective podcast with Carson Block, exploring the nature of the people who are committing these frauds; the difference between the visionary and the fraudster; what is needed on the other side of the ledger to uncover these frauds and withstand the pressure from believers; and finally the role of short sellers in today’s markets. Please enjoy.

This week on the Value Perspective podcast we welcome two investment professionals with many years’ experience of investing in Eastern European markets, Rollo Roscow, Head of EMEA at Schroders and Steve Gorelik Head of Research at Firebird Management.

The Value Perspective Podcast with Jake Taylor 2.0

August 7, 2022

We’re back from a short holiday and we’re also back with our guest Jake Taylor. You may know Jake as one of the hosts of the podcast Value: After Hours or as the CEO of Farnam Street Investments. In this episode he gives an update on Journalytic the decision making software he made reference to in his last appearance on the Value Perspective and discusses how steadying the returns from the S&P 500 over the past decade has given him a new framework to think about the future. It wouldn’t be a Value Perspective conversation without some Bayesian probabilities chat and finally Jake touches on investing in climate change from the perspective of a former electrical engineer and gives his observations from the West Coast. Enjoy!
