SkyBridge Capital concentrates in alternative asset management and advisory. The interview, which discusses, “SkyBridge’s evolution from seeder to integrated asset manager with a dual fund of funds/seeding model” can be found here:
Scaramucci founded SkyBridge Capital in 2005, and through his entrepreneurial prowess has succeeded in managing about $7.7 billion in assets despite the economic downturn. He is also the author of Goodbye Gordon Gekko: How to Find Your Fortune Without Losing Your Soul, which emphasizes the importance of values and understanding in the financial industry.

Professor Amar Bhide of the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy recently wrote a blog post about bank regulation and the failures of the American banking reforms for Project Syndicate. Project Syndicate is a source for op-ed commentaries from world leaders in every different field.
In the op-ed Professor Bhide writes:
Reversing the robotic gigantism of banking ought to be the top priority for reform. Bankers were once supposed to know every borrower, and to make case-by-case lending decisions. Now, however, banks use models conjured up by faraway financial wizards to mass-produce credit and a range of derivative products.
This is a familiar topic for Bhide. In 2010 he published A Call For Judgment: Sensible Finance for a Dynamic Recovery.
