This week Brewin Dolphin's Head of Research, Guy Foster, talks to Neuberger Berman money manager, Steve Eisman. Listeners may be more familiar with Mr Eisman's alter ego, Mark Baum who was one of the protagonists in the hit 2015 film The Big Short. Steve tells us whether he is like his character in the film, whether he really stumbled across the trade by way of a misplaced phone call and why the greatest trade of his life left him fuming. After quickly comparing the outlook for Europe and its banks, we also discuss the regulatory response to the crisis and how that might change as the new administration is sworn in today. It would, of course, be churlish not to ask Steve where our when the next crisis is brewing.
