Eric Crittenden and Standpoint Funds specialize in a systematic investment style that they like to call “macro trend investing” that they also combine with long equity beta. Crittenden’s experience and research have shown that this all-weather approach helps to diversify across asset classes and investment styles to protect investors from the risks of concentration while also providing strong returns. In this interview with Jason Buck, CIO of The Mutiny Fund, Crittenden outlines his rules and reasoning for constructing this portfolio; why, when it comes to systematic investing, robustness beats elegance; and the surprising reality that, if one anonymized the investing options, most people would probably be doing something completely different than they are now.
