“Last year was quite unprecedented from the standpoint of volatility in different markets.” – Peter Kambolin (Tweet)
Peter Kambolin comes from the short term CTA space, and thus has a different perspective than some of our previous guests for our Year in Review theme this month. He discusses how the events in Crimea and Russia shaped markets, how divergence played a role, and how his firm made small changes to models and even added a new product line in 2014.
Thanks for listening and please welcome our guest Peter Kambolin.
