Mikael Syding | The Curious Worldview Podcast #118

Mikael Syding is one of the most interesting people I’ve ever had the opportunity to speak with on this podcast.

In 2010, his hedge fund, Futuris, won European hedge fund of the decade. Mikael is an extremely popular voice in the Swedish investment community and as erudite and eclectic in his interests as they come.

In addition to popularising the Italian word for effortless mastery, sprezzatura, Mikael also writes regularly about markets, philosophy, psychedelics, his own personal story, science, sleep, psychology and just about all the interesting type of stuff that the audience of a Curious Worldview are primmed at attention for.

This chat covers a spectrum of topic including…

  • Mikael Syding’s Formative Years
  • Patrick Bateman As A Role Model
  • Consciousness & Psychedelics
  • Short Positions (Elon Musk & Tesla)
  • Nassim Taleb & Risk
  • + More & More As Well
