Ep. 115 - Human Nature Hasn’t Changed in Millennia, There’s Your Edge with Jim O’Shaughnessy, Chairman and Co-CIO of O’Shaughnessy Asset Management

April 8, 2020

For this episode of the Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Jim O’Shaughnessy, Chairman and Co-Chief Investment Officer at O’Shaughnessy Asset Management. This is a big episode for me. Simply put, Jim is a legend, and I am so grateful he took the time to do this interview with me. I honestly don’t even know how to put into words what he means to our industry: from his numerous best sellers, recognition as a pioneer in quantitative equity analysis, to founding one of the most successful investment firms out there. We recorded this on Wednesday, March 4th, and couldn’t imagine any better captain to help us navigate these volatile and abnormal waters than Jim O’Shaughnessy.
