CNBC Interviews Brian Singer


February 10, 2015

In a recent interview on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Brian Singer, CFA, partner and co-portfolio manager of the William Blair Macro Allocation Fund, discusses how a populist movement in Greece and across Europe could impact the Eurozone. In the interview, Singer highlights that:

  • Across Europe there is a populist fervor, which is dangerous for the eurozone
  • Greece is currently in a position to threaten Germany as part of the austerity negotiations
  • If the eurozone gives in to Greece Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras, it reinforces the populist parties in other European countries

Despite these risks, the CNBC segment also highlights where Brian is currently finding opportunities:
  • Eurozone and emerging market equities are attractive
  • Easy monetary policy throughout the region creates a positive environment for risky assets
