    Great interview. It is because of interviews like this that I've subscribed to RVTV. Most interesting raising the question of how intergenerational transfer of wealth will be managed, and whether Developing Economies will at any point decide to retain their wealth domestically. Striking questions that are worth investigating further. Keep up the good work.

    Great interview! Amanzing insights on correlation. Even tough not new information, but it is always good to be remembered of the basics and the obvious.

    One of Real Vision's BEST. She is a very sharp lady. She doesn't claim to have all of the answers, but she is clearly asking the right questions and framing them correctly. She has a great framework. Awesome and thank you

    It sounds like she is running a fund of funds. I would be interested to see what type of returns her clients are realizing as compared to the two layers of fees taken by her firm and the underlying managers.

    An incredibly intelligent, multi-experienced Prof giving great insights and an alternative view. Clearly has a bug about macro as we are constantly reminded ‘we don’t do macro’, but fully trust she has done her due diligence. Particularly liked her laughing at newbies trying to crunch VIX numbers – it backs up her scientific way of breaking markets down logically.

    Excellent interview and a peak behind a curtain that but for RVTV most of us would never experience! When the bough breaks baby will fall and down will come--well, we know the rest. Hedging is helpful, but know thy plumbing.

    Excellent commentary from someone with a deep understanding of the bond markets. One of the best think pieces I've listened to. Thanks for this.

    Keep interviews like this coming! Insights like this into the plumbing of the system and how various actors within the system react / think are crucial

    It would be more enlightening to get more information on her comments, I.e. the why. Some notions are too complex to just brush over them.

    Just when I thought I grasped a few concepts....this went way over my head but I appreciate that she articulates her points clearly. I just don't have a basis to judge. Great variety of thinker though, keep it up!

    Does the transcript come with a translation of the points Jane is trying to get across?

    "So how does a firm do this? Well, first of all we're all former professors..." THAT is her strongest and opening argument? Good grief. Run from her, don't walk. The PhD delusion is strong in this one...

    The reason she dose that is she doesn't know

    She is describing the problem, not the solution.
