James Montier doesn't wear ties or suits etc. He doesn't look smooth or polished. He isn't the type you would put in a line-up of likely bankers, and yet he is refreshingly honest and knowledgeable about investing.
Montier is an economist and global equity strategist at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein, a German-owned investment bank.
Montier has common sense and the ability to sum up some basic arguments very well. If you are interested in investments, looking at an MBA etc. you find this video very interesting.
James also doesn't scream or yell seeking to be a personality, he just has a very honest voice.
There are some excellent points made in this video. Well worth the time.
Some Quotes from the video: "We intentionally screw people. We have become marketing bitches. Even Fama and French don't believe in the Efficient Market Hypothesis."
oh and Montier's synthesis of economic data with leading-edge behavioral research got him named London's "best global strategist" last year.
