Our guest today is Meb Faber, Founder & Chief Investment Officer at Cambria Investment Management. He also hosts one of the top investment podcasts called The Meb Faber Show.  

In this episode, talk about Meb’s quantitative approach to investing, embracing both value and trend following. We dive into one of his funds, $TAIL, and the entire thought process of how, when, and why to hedge your portfolio. We also talk about the benefits of a shareholder yield approach, and why he has started to do some private investing in over 200 companies.

As we wind down, we have a fun quick Q&A on why he would describe himself as something other than a quant, why he would love to get in on SpaceX’s cap table, and how he loved the Tim Tebow days with the Denver Broncos.

Today’s episode is hosted by Colby Donovan, Corporate Finance Associate at Truist Bank, and co-hosted with Chris Cannon, CFA, Chief Investment Officer at FirsTrust and board member for CFA Society of Orlando.
