→ 🏅 AWARD SEASON: The 2019 ETF.com award nominations are now open! If you've enjoyed reading Newfound's research this year, we'd sincerely appreciate a nomination for category #31 "ETF Investor of the Year." You can access the nomination form here.
While we've mostly stuck to written research notes for the last three years, the really positive feedback we received on our video on diversification has us exploring some alternative media options.
This week, we've adopted a podcast interview format.
If you weren't aware, we actually host our own podcast – Flirting with Models – which is an interview-based deep dive on quantitative investing topics. We've historically released a season per year and then things largely sit dormant.
But his week, Nathan joins to host and interviews me all about rebalance timing luck. Our goal is to continue to illuminate the subject, but hopefully through conversation make it more approachable than our more technical research notes.
You can find the podcast on most major platforms (iTunes, Stitcher, Google Play, TuneIn, Android, or Spotify) or listen to the episode directly on our blog.
