I’m not criticizing those people. Been there, done that actually. My entire risk management #process was born through the experience of A) a buy-side analyst who B) had to grow into becoming a successful generalist portfolio manager.
Like anyone with experience, I’m just trying my best to help coach and make people better.
Being better at anything in life starts with being aware. Being Macro Aware of the SECULAR and the CYCLICAL is only the beginning of trying to proactively prepare for measurable “risks” that CEOs and CFOs of companies aren’t.
