The Inner Game of Investing

Published on: October 21st, 2021

Dan McMurtrie, portfolio manager and co-founder of Tyro Partners, has put together an impressive track record as a process-driven, fundamental, long-short equity hedge fund, having compounded at over 25% over the past 5 years. In this interview with Michael Green of Simplify Asset Management, McMurtrie highlights why he has turned his focus toward maximizing his decision-making capabilities rather than his knowledge level in a particular name or idea. In addition to this new focus on decision quality, McMurtrie and Green also examine the dynamic nature of markets and the importance of open-mindedness and adaptability if you want to have any sort of long-term investing success. They also explore where McMurtrie is finding pockets of inefficiency, why he is approaching securities from a utility perspective rather than an intrinsic value perspective, and the top-down nature of pecking in the investing world order that tends to drive the current market regime.
