Jens Nordvig is Founder & CEO of Exante Data and MarketReader. An alumnus of Goldman Sachs, Bridgewater Associates, and Nomura, we dig into Jens’ career to understand the world-renowned culture at Ray Dalio’s Bridgewater, and how those experiences have informed his unique investment approach.
Today’s focus is Japan, as the country’s finance minister warns Japan’s finances have become increasingly precarious, to an almost “unprecedented degree”, we first look back, to understand how the world’s third-largest economy has amassed the heaviest debt burden in the industrialised world.
Next, Jens’ covers Japan’s monetary policy, commenting on a historic move last December, and the BOJ’s decision to maintain the policy balance rate last week. Our focus on Japan ends with an explanation of the ripple effect this situation is having on equity and currency markets around the world.
We finish with Jens’ ‘next big idea’, an underreported economic trend he reckons listeners should keep a close eye on, in 2023.
