The Fortune 2021 Roundtable

Special thanks to Fortune Magazine for inviting me to participate in the 2021 Roundtable this year. It was great catching up with Savita and the whole gang, talking about what investors should be expecting in the year to come. I have more perspective than I have predictions, but I did go on a fun little rant about the whole “democratization of investing” canard – Robinhood, SPACs, payment for order flow, shitty money market funds, etc.

You can watch that rant here:
