Video: Marketfield’s Michael Shaoul on Liquid Alternatives

In this video, Michael Shaoul, CEO of Marketfield Asset Management, explains why Marketfield’s liquid alternative fund is more liquid than many products in the category. “There’s a huge distinction between a portfolio such as ours, which is genuinely liquid and transparent, which is dominated by large-cap equities that price at four o’clock in New York … and some of the other products that are trafficking in securities that price less regularly,” he says. It’s important for investors to understand these distinctions, according to Shaoul, so they don’t make decisions “from a position of ignorance.” To this end, Shaoul emphasizes the need for investor education in liquid alts products.
