In this episode, I sat down to talk with Jason about the market events of March 2020. We start by talking about why many narratives around the market crash may be wrong and the evidence that what we have seen so far is maybe not a harbinger of a crashing economy but rather an institutional liquidity crisis.

We then talk through some historical analogies to give investors a basis for thinking about what is to come. We talk about 2008, the 1987 flash crash and the less known Hong Kong Flu of ‘69 crash.

Finally, we talk about how investors can be prepared for any eventuality and strategies for protecting against a second or third leg down in markets.

I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
