Felix Zulauf on the European Debt Crisis−No Painless Way Out
Money Printing Going Global
Jim welcomes back Felix Zulauf, Founder and President at Zulauf Asset Management AG for another wide-ranging discussion. In the first of a two-part interview, Felix discusses the European debt crisis and believes the bailouts will be bigger than anticipated. He also sees money printing going global as central banks expand their balance sheets to equal or surpass the GDP of their respective countries.
Felix has worked in the financial markets and asset management for almost 40 years. He started his investment career as a trader for a large Swiss Bank and received training in research and portfolio management thereafter with several leading investment banks in New York, Zurich and in Paris. Felix joined Union Bank of Switzerland (UBS), Zurich, in 1977 and held several positions over the years including managing global mutual funds, heading the institutional portfolio management unit and at the same time acting as the global strategist for the UBS Group. After two years with a medium-sized Financial Organization as a member of the executive board, he founded his wholly owned Zulauf Asset Management AG in 1990, allowing him to independently practice his own individual investment philosophy.
In 2001, he made two of his staff members to partners and sold the majority of his company to them in steps and acted only as advisor from 2003 onwards. Mr. Zulauf focused on macro and strategic issues within the firm. In spring 2009 Zulauf Asset Management was split in two parts and Felix Zulauf fully owns the split-off Zulauf Asset Management AG focusing on some advisory activities to selected family offices and institutions including a US based global macro fund.
