S01E08: “Go Global and Quantitative with Value and Momentum” with Mebane Faber !!!

I have been reading the work of today’s guest for many years. He has done some amazing research with Value Portfolios, Momentum Portfolios, Global Asset Allocation etc. I like his agnostic approach to investing without getting biased by any philosophy and his work is highly recommended by two prominent guests on our earlier podcasts, Wesley Gray and Gary Antonacci. We talk to Meb Faber, CIO at Cambria Investment Management.

Generally, we prefer to have long and detailed podcasts but this time around we had slightly less time than we anticipated and hence some of the questions have a presumed understanding of some concepts. But having said that, the conversation is fascinating and we would highly recommend reading articles on those subjects which are available on Meb’s website.

Let’s listen to Meb now.
