Published on: April 2nd, 2021

Jamie McDonald gives the full “Investor Masterclass” treatment to an interview from 2020 featuring hedge fund legend Dmitry Balyasny, CEO and founder of Balyasny Asset Management. In this interview, Real Vision CEO and co-founder Raoul Pal and Balyasny give an inside glimpse into the hedge fund industry, discussing Balyasny’s full investment philosophy on idea generation, asset allocation, position sizing, and risk management as well as how he has gone about managing his own trading while building one of the most successful and antifragile hedge funds of all time. Jamie takes these key insights from Balyasny on how he personally trades and runs his multi-strategy fund with hundreds of different portfolio managers, arguably geared more toward professional investors, and explains how and why they can be applied to any investor—whether professional or retail.
