Welcome to the Big Picture interview. This is the first in a series of interviews with the most insightful and influential money managers, traders, economists and strategists. We will be doing this at least once or twice per month, and already have a stellar line up of guestsin the queue. (We had some technical difficulties with the recordings, which have since been fixed.)
Felix W. Zulauf, for those unfamiliar with him, is a legend in the asset management business. He has worked in the financial markets for almost 40 years, starting his investment career as a trader for Swiss Bank, then training in research and portfolio management in New York, Zurich and in Paris.
In 1977, Felix joined Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS), Zurich, managing global mutual funds, heading the institutional portfolio management unit and being global strategist for the UBS Group. He founded his wholly owned Zulauf Asset Management AG in 1990, allowing him to independently practice his own individual investment philosophy.
Felix Zulauf always believed that the world economy and the financial markets move in cycles. That has helped him avoiding all the major casualties in the financial markets since the 1973/74 bear market in equities. He is a member of Barron’s Roundtable for over 20 years.
Today, we are thrilled to chat with Felix Zulauf: We discuss his work background, training, and history as an asset manager, and why he is coming out of retirement to advise on a new hedge fund.
