What do the giants of the investment world talk about when they’re behind closed doors?

Here at Real Vision, we wanted to find out. And that’s why we asked hedge fund magnate Kyle Bass, the founder of Hayman Capital, to interview fellow billionaire Mark Cuban, the serial tech entrepreneur, famed angel investor, and the owner of the Dallas Mavericks.

The answer was fascinating. In a 50-minute conversation, the two finance legends discussed the impact of artificial intelligence, the outlook for bitcoin, and Cuban’s biggest single-stock holding.

“When I make decisions – build versus buy – robotics are now a part of the decision,” Cuban said. “Now it’s not just ‘Who can I hire?’, it’s ‘What can I hire?”

When Bass asked about bitcoin, Cuban responded that rather than a currency or commodity, it’s simply “a brilliant collectable.”

The two also delved into more personal topics, like how to pass money onto one’s children.

“I tell them: ‘My biggest fear after your health is, I don’t want you to be an entitled jerk,’” Cuban said.

And both Mark Cuban and Kyle Bass shared striking personal anecdotes about their hard-knock beginnings and their current globe-trotting lifestyles.

“I worked every day for $3.05 an hour,” Bass said, leading Cuban to exclaim: “My first job was $1.60 an hour!”

By the end of this funny and engaging conversation, we have learned something deeply valuable: The convictions and the values that drive the men who invest the biggest sums. We also walk away with specific pieces of investing advice, including some stock picks that may surprise.

It’s no secret that all of us have much to learn from the greats of the investment world. But Real Vision’s latest video springs out of a new question: What can those same great investors learn from one another?
