This is “ReSolve’s Riffs” – live on YouTube every Friday afternoon to debate the most relevant investment topics of the day.

While the theme was the Chinese investment landscape, this episode can also be described as the Bobby Schwarz show. From his early days as a floor trader in Chicago, through his experience making movies in Hollywood, then finally founding RCM Alternatives, Bobby recounts countless memorable stories including:

  • The high-octane environment of life on a trading floor, including heart and panic attacks
  • Verbal exchanges with big names in Hollywood (including John McClane aka Bruce Willis) and creating a multi-factor model to gauge movie success that is used to this day
  • Returning to Chicago to build a new business and adapting to an industry in constant flux
  • Venturing into China, learning the culture and understanding their values
  • Big risks and even bigger opportunities

The candor and quality of Bobby’s narrative produced meaningful insights and great humor, making this one of the most entertaining episodes of our Riffs to date.

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