More and more insiders are warning of a potential systemic event.
The first sign of real trouble concerned a number of investment legends choosing to close shop and return investors’ capital.
The first real titan to bow out was Stanley Druckenmiller. Druckenmiller maintained average annual gains of nearly 30% for 30 years. He is arguably one of if not the greatest investor of the last three decades.
In 2010, he chose to close shop, foregoing billions in management fees.
Druckenmiller was not alone. In 2011, investment legend Carl Icahn closed his hedge fund to outside investors. Again, here was an investment legend who could lock in billions in investment management fees choosing to close up shop.
He has since stated he is “extremely worried” about stocks.
The list continues.
