To meaningfully evaluate any investment you have to know how the expected return percentage compares to the associated risk percentage, but almost no one does that.
People rely on stories, their feelings and relationships to make investment decisions. Those are great for choosing friends but do nothing to help you determine how to invest if you actually care about your money.
The big shadow banks hire physicists and mathematicians called quants to measure and engineer the risk-adjusted performance of the investments they sell.
They often use this expertise to bet against the public and push shoddy product through their armies of sales staff called financial advisors.
As a quant myself with an academic background in physics, I’m taking this expertise from behind the closed doors of the big banks to the public in my book and masterclass The Shadow Banker’s Secrets: Investment Banking for Alternatives to level the playing field.
You'll learn how to not only identify and create superior risk-adjusted investment performance, but how to compliantly securitize it to raise unlimited capital as your own bank."
