Interview With Michael Mauboussin: Masters In Business

Michael Mauboussin is head of global financial strategies at Credit Suisse. He began his career at Drexel Burnham Lambert in the 1980s through what he describes as a random stroke of good luck. He worked closely with Bill Miller, former chairman of Legg Mason Capital Management. He is also an adjunct at Columbia University School of Business.

Mauboussin was our fourth guest (about 100 episodes ago) — I hope this interview is an improvement on my first attempt.

The role of luck and randomness in the investing process has fascinated Mauboussin for years. Some of his earlier work looked at problems of cognitive bias and why investors find it so difficult to change their minds, even when presented with overwhelming evidence of error and failure. He is the author of numerous books, most recently “The Success Equation: Untangling Skill and Luck in Business, Sports, and Investing.”
