The Meb Faber Show: “Eric Balchunas, Bloomberg – Bogle is One of the Investing GOATs”
Eric Balchunas, Bloomberg – Bogle is One of the Investing GOATs
Today’s guest is Eric Balchunas, an analyst at Bloomberg Intelligence focused on exchange-traded funds and the author of The Bogle Effect: How John Bogle and Vanguard Turned Wall Street Inside Out and Saved Investors Trillions.
In today’s episode, we’re talking about the legend John Bogle. Eric covers his early struggles to get Vanguard off the ground and the impact he’s had on the entire investment community. I even ask Eric what he thinks Mr. Bogle would say about my one major disagreement with him. We also touch on a number of big trends within the ETF industry, including direct indexing, possible consolidation, and Mutual Fund to ETF conversions.
As we wind down, Eric shares some of his favorite ETF ideas that haven’t been launched yet, including a Congressional replication ETF.
