This week in WealthTrack’s series on Great Investors, Consuelo Mack delves into the world of hedge funds with MIT Professor and hedge fund investor Andrew Lo. A student of investor behavior, Lo explains how human psychology plays a key role in financial crises, including the most recent one.

Lo is one of the up-and-coming stars of the investment world both as a financial thought leader and investor. The late, great financial historian Peter Bernstein, among others, highly recommended him as one of the best minds in the world of finance.

Note: The transcript of this interview is not available yet, but will be posted here as soon as it arrives.
