MacroVoices Special Series

Alhambra Partners CIO Jeffrey Snider has been one of the most popular guests ever on the MacroVoices weekly podcast. But even the finance professionals in our audience told us that Jeff goes so deep into the EuroDollar system that most people couldn’t follow all the nuances of his statements. So, by request of our listeners, we’re delighted to bring you this special 4-part series. Jeff gives us a complete introduction to the Eurodollar system, its history, and the critical role it has played in monetary history. Jeff asserts that even to this day, central bankers don’t fully understand the workings of the Eurodollar system and its implications on the global supply of U.S. dollars. We strongly recommend listening to the entire series as a prerequisite to Jeff’s other interviews on the weekly MacroVoices podcast.

In this five-episode series, Erik Townsend and Aaron Chan explore the world of “alternative” investments which are restricted by law to accredited investors. The series begins with Erik’s personal war story of dealing with the sharks on Wall Street who offer “private banking” services, and why his experience with them led him to reinvent himself as a full-time private investor, managing all of his investments personally. The next episode discusses the journey of re-inventing oneself from retired entrepreneur to “professional” private investor. The third episode dives into the world of alternative investment vehicles restricted to accredited investors, how they work, why they are able to achieve better investment returns than public equity markets offer, and their offering terms and fee structures. From there venture capital and private equity funds are discussed in detail. The next episode is dedicated entirely to angel investing, meaning directly funding the start-up of new businesses. The final episode is all about hedge funds, fund-of-funds, managed commodity futures, and commodity trading advisors.
