In this episode of Guiding Assets, host Mike Wallberg is joined by Dr. Edward McQuarrie, Professor Emeritus of the Levy School of Business at Santa Clara University. Dr. McQuarrie challenges some long-held assumptions in financial markets, including the belief that stocks always outperform bonds over the long term and that a negative correlation between bonds and stocks leads to effective diversification.
