Marc Abrahams, our Head of Multi-Asset Research, explores the concept of “Antifragility” with Lebanese American essayist, scholar and statistician, Nassim Taleb whose work focuses on problems of randomness, probability and uncertainty.
Taleb argues that it is not enough just to be resilient through times of crisis but countries, institutions and even people can actually benefit from a certain amount of uncertainty, randomness, and error provided they have the right flexibility and adaptive systems in place.Return to Investment Institute
