The Emergence of a New Asset Class: Event Contracts

Kalshi is pioneering a new way to trade on the outcome of events.

Featuring Tarek Mansour and Sahil Bloom

Feb 03, 2022 • 58 minutes

Ever wondered how you can directly trade an event without investing in assets that are correlated to other market factors? Kalshi makes it possible—it’s the first federally regulated exchange where investors can trade on the outcome of events. Tarek Mansour, CEO of Kalshi, explains to Sahil Bloom, managing partner at SRB Ventures, how event contracts will be the next step in the evolution of futures markets. With event contracts, you can trade on any possible outcome—whether it’s Brexit, Fed rate hikes, the next president of the United States, or how COVID will develop in the future. Contrary to current, inefficient hedging methods, Kalshi offers a natural way to hedge risks directly, and Mansour goes in depth on how investors can leverage these contracts in their portfolios and his projections for the growth of this new asset class. Recorded on January 28, 2022. Show More
