Geoff Comments: Unbelievable! These public/private pensions, set up with a yield requirement of 6-8% was asking for trouble to begin with, then to make up for that blunder, the managers begin to take real risks, trying to psyche out major markets by selling puts in volume, then when volatility shows up, all is lost… These guys shouldn’t manage a savings account, much less a pension fund…
