Episode 4: Macro manager Eric Lonergan’s ‘manifesto’ for Extinction Rebellion

Eric Lonergan, a macro hedge fund manager and policy economist, discussed themes from his latest book, SuperCharge Me, in episode four of the AFI podcast.

He admits the book, which provides a policy action plan to turbocharge the green agenda by speeding up decarbonisation, can be seen as a manifesto for Extinction Rebellion. Lonergan helps oversee more than $4bn in the long-running Episode macro strategy at M&G Investments.

He also gives his take on investing in the current macro environment and how his work as a policy economist and financial author help his work as a hedge fund manager, and vice versa.
