Grandma needs advice
My grandma, god bless her soul I still remember her legendary naans and samosas she used to bake for me, was deciding between hedge funds (MM or SM) to invest in. She has a heart of gold and worked super hard in her life doing two jobs to support her family. While we were going for a walk, I recommended to her that you can't really time the market and to just invest in SM as overtime the market should recover. She agreed with me as she noted the positive secular trends with A.I and core inflation coming down. However, while staring at a lake she abruptly asked me why should she be taking economic risk when she can have uncorrelated returns in the long short pair trade model. Anyways, I see her point but wanted to ask for advice.
