A 61% drawdown necessitates a 156% increase to get back to even – only 44% to go. So why is this guy so interesting other than the fact that he has a Counting Crow as a client?

If I had lost “over 61%” in my clients’ equity portfolios in 2008, I would not have very many clients left with me. Certainly, I would not have brought in as many new assets this year as I already have. I guess that one way to manage a $5myn mutual fund is to start with $7myn.

I have traveled with Malcolm and Marshall — kicking rocks at silver mines in Mexico … and other stuff. They are true mensches (sp?), and for an Italian boy from Brooklyn NY who lives in Tiburon CA, that … sounds … good.
