In today’s episode, we sit down with Alex Shahidi and Damien Bisserier from Evoke Advisors, to discuss balanced portfolio allocation tactics used by billionaires like Ray Dalio.

Damien used to work for Dalio at Bridgewater Associates - the largest Hedge fund in the world with more than $160B under management, while Alex has over 20 years of experience managing billions of dollars for his clients. We discuss why, after years of research, Alex and Damien have concluded that a portfolio based on risk parity is the optimal structure for any investor.
