There are myriad ways to quantify risk. But investors, at times, struggle to even accept risk. This lesson is one of many Todd Edgar, the chief investment officer of the Atreaus Family Office, has distilled from his multi-decade career in finance. In conversation with Christian Alexander of Macro Link, Todd details his journey from working the slopes as a snowboarding instructor right out of college to moving on up at Tudor Investment to eventually founding his own hedge fund. Todd and Christian also talk about why the durability of inflation may be underemphasized, whether the proliferation of recession narratives is actually “hopeful,” and whom Edgar prefers, Led Zeppelin or the Rolling Stones.
