Real VisionMarch 24, 2020
Dan Rasmussen, the CIO and Founder of Verdad Capital Advisers, speaks with his colleague Greg Obenshain, Verdad’s director of credit, to examine the credit market sell-off over the past two months. They focus on the recent widening of spreads and other areas of financial markets hit hardest by the recent acceleration. Rasmussen asks Obenshain what the biggest factors for returns in corporate credit are, the turmoil in the credit markets has impacted the energy sector, and where they see the biggest opportunities for investors will be coming out of the crisis. They also update Verdad’s Fool’s Yield thesis that the company has been writing about since January 2020 and that Rasmussen has presented to Real Vision members in the past few months. Filmed on March 17, 2020 over Skype.

Bank Insolvency, Bailouts, and Blockchain
Financial journalist Pedro DaCosta speaks with former FDIC chair Sheila Bair about the ongoing efforts of the U.S. government to contain the economic damage inflicted by the COVID-19 pandemic. She discusses the Small Business Administration’s (SBA) efforts to extend credit to endangered businesses and explores whether the Federal Reserve might use blockchain technology in order to deliver emergency cash to U.S. citizens in a more efficient (as well as hygienic) manner.
