Jihan Bowes-Little is Managing Partner and Co-Founder of Bracket Capital.
Jihan began his investing career in London on Goldman Sachs’ esteemed Global Macro Proprietary Trading Desk, the first analyst in the firm’s history to be asked to join. In 2006, he moved to Credit Trading, where he managed a multi-billion dollar portfolio throughout the subprime crisis, generating record profits and gaining invaluable expertise investing in illiquid markets and emerging asset classes. He later joined Millennium Capital as a Portfolio Manager, and was later recruited to lead a multi-strategy portfolio for BlueCrest Capital, where he was promoted to Partner in 2012.
In this conversation, we discussed why liquidity matters, good mental frameworks for balancing risk and reward, how to identify markets with attractive dislocation, where Jihan sees opportunity in the world of venture capital, and why the era of passive investing is dead.
