Resolve's Gestalt University

Jan 25, 2022

To kick off the new year, our 2022 inaugural episode welcomed back Jeff Weniger, Head of Equity Strategy at WisdomTree Asset Management. Sharp-witted and pulling no punches, Jeff and the team covered topics that included:

  • The early year equity rotation as the inflation narrative gathers steam
  • The third leg of the portfolio stool that most investors are likely missing
  • Owning commodities vs commodity-linked equities
  • Most investors today have barely had any experience with inflation in markets – remembering the commodity super-cycle of the early 2000s
  • Not all inflation is created equally – how it arises determines what asset-classes and instruments can be used most effectively
  • The types of risk gold responds to, and why it hasn’t performed as many expected
  • Owner’s Equivalent Rent and its delayed effect in the Consumer Price Index
  • Maybe the cure for high commodity prices… is high commodity prices
  • The “stealth crash” in the Nasdaq and aggressive equity sector rotation
  • Market-cap weighted equity investors can miss out on huge gains in underrepresented sectors over prolonged periods
  • The possible upcoming perils for Big Tech
  • An ESG Conundrum – the anti-social externality caused by social media platforms
  • Disclosure and the new paradigm of ESG – how sticky can this be?
  • The era of crisis, necessity and change on both micro and macro levels
  • The toughest decade ever for diversified portfolios
  • The reawakening of the value factor


Thank you for watching and listening. See you next week.
