Guest: Tim Toohey, Head of Macro and Strategy at Yarra Capital Management.
Just a few minutes ago, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a "special military operation" in Ukraine - an apparent euphemism, for the world watching on, for "invasion". Despite weeks of speculation, the news of war in Europe is truly shocking no matter where you are on Earth.
Most investors have never witnessed anything like this in their lifetimes, and how markets react in the short term is anyone’s guess.
Just a couple of days ago, I had an in-depth discussion about what were then just ‘tensions’ in Ukraine with Tim Toohey, Head of Macro and Strategy at Yarra Capital Management. We discussed the likely effects on different parts of the market, as well as the best way to hedge portfolio risk.
In this episode of The Rules of Investing podcast, we also hear why markets may be underestimating the rate rises set to come from the US Federal Reserve, and he explains a critical piece of data out of China that could have global ramifications.
