Elizabeth Warren's Former Student Speaks Out
In this episode, Dan jumps straight into the interview with this week’s guest, David Levine. David is the Founder of Odin River and operates the popular @paranoidbull Twitter account. He has spent his career at top private equity and hedge fund institutions. David is an advisor and investor in numerous startups including Artivest, a successful Fin-Tech company with over 100 employees and ~$3B in AUM, which he helped to found. He was previously a key member of the investment teams at Paulson & Co. and Colony Capital.
David’s background in philosophy has carried over to his investing approach, as has his own brand of risk analysis. Interestingly, he has this in common with his old professor Elizabeth Warren, who he used to have many chats about moral hazard and financial risk in our system – although as you’ll hear, this may be the only thing they have in common.
