Ben Davies – Part Two

Featuring Ben Davies

Ben Davies, founder of Hinde Capital, dives deeper into the continuing evolution of markets in an era of central bank dominance. In the second of this fascinating two-part interview, Davies discusses Greece and the EU, the plight of the consumer in the 21st century, and expands upon the idea of certain markets being ‘trend ready’.

    Great insight and thoughts. Could have done with editing out the UK election comments though given they were wrong and posted on RV well after it

    Australian property boom is limited to Sydney, and especially those suburbs where the Chinese are buying at any price. Feels like a recession here, and thus an interest rate dilemma for Glenn Stevens.

    Good discussion indeed. Be great for RV to try to get these interviews on line a little quicker. Comments on the election and minority government risks were clearly wrong along with other pollsters.

    Both parts are fascinating. The most useful takeaway for me is Davies' advice to "focus on the process" and not the outcome.

    Great discussion, especially the Australian piece. Let's hope Glenn Stevens resists lowering rates any further. An interesting 6 months ahead!

    I don't think you can short French bonds unless you have a long to hedge. Repos / Banks appetite to help is ZERO (for good reason) same with Italy / Portugal...very hard if not impossible to execute

    The joy of living in fantasy monetary policy land is indescribable. It is like riding a rollercoaster car up the first big hill not knowing how far the drop will be or if the track is complete.
