"With the idea of operator defines Mike Microphones. Vc's themselves having been founders or scout programs and I've always asked like why do fund the funds exists like our fund of UN's better at picking other. Gp's than Mike Maples. That floodgate or Josh complimented first rounder or other. Bbc's it'd be very easy for them to To pick and get into a other other other firms How do you think about that to dress the I guess maybe the the the negotiating leverage or the or the market dynamics that create some of those You know negotiating dynamics. I think there's a lot of a lot of similarity in in at least what. I observed that venture capitalists. I've had to deal with with you. Know really talented. Repeat entrepreneurs which is you know. It's a it's a competitive market and and You know there's there's a lot of leverage that those that there's entrepreneurs hold over over a lot of the venture managers. I think the same holds true with venture managers in in their. Lp's I I was having a conversation the other day with With Nell VP. Who had just made a commitment to a venture fund that was pretty well You know a pretty well known brand and the diligence process was completely uncomfortable. The ability to ask questions and to meet a broad swath of the team was was limited and so they had to. Kinda compromise their their typical underwriting process in order to secure the allocation. That's that's certainly not an ideal Not An ideal dynamics I think there's some similarities in that On the fund the Fund business or the the rationale or the the reason funds could exist. I think I don't really have a great perspective on why Mike Naples or something like that wouldn't stepped in and kind of serve a similar role but you know speaking for a typical l. p. e. and the way they build or construct portfolios. You know there's the allocation thing I just mentioned a competitive market funds in my opinion my history. My experience of actually added value to a lot of. Lp's in the sense that they have a lot of those long term relationships that they have that capacity with some of the firms that that otherwise maybe hard to get into I you know in terms of manager selection skill or lack thereof is You know I think it's hard to kind of deal by deal. Basis determine whether it exists or not but on sort of a a large statistical basis if you look at a lot of fun to funds they some of the better ones and there's a lot of them have actually added value relative adventure markets. You're not getting a venture median return minus their fees. You're actually getting something above that. So I think you know in some larger scale. They're adding value and shading portfolio towards the higher the higher performing firms. But I think a lot of the value for an LP is a little bit more in in a little more structural in this gets to maybe Something you know Ali or we were talking about before the before the podcast which is portfolio construction and a Lotta LP's You know are concentrating more or focusing more and more on concentrating their portfolio less manager names In their portfolio kind of making chunkier bet and You know that can sometimes be challenging and adventure asset class where you know it's capacity constrained and so you know funds can add value in terms of being able to kind of scale up Threw a chunk of your commitment to the asset class. That's kind of one. It's one feature. They can add. I think if you're you're you know I think if you're kind of running a more concentrated portfolio so a typical client mild in my old job is an investment consultant. You know typical client would be making between five and seven commitments a year across the entire private equity asset class including buyouts credit and things of that nature and so to. Kinda build a portfolio around that kind of your maybe a quarter your portfolio's venture capital that kind of implies you're making one venture bet a year maybe two. That's kind of a hard game to win. I think there's a lot more dispersion of returns and venture and to have a you know a fun to fund as a tool as a way to kind of have that exposure not have to take quite so much idiosyncratic you know single manager risk. What I'm hearing. There is to the one of the reasons. Maybe not the only reason to be fun to find is if you're an alligator and you're used to making really trump the investments and a handful things each year. That game doesn't really work with venture capital because the funds are so tall and had to write so many checks to. You WanNa basically take what you normally do an right one sort of larger check each year. You gotta be the pundits on otherwise you had to build up her. Turn on that sort of what you're saying. Yeah I totally agree with that as well as you know. There's there's all the relationship issue and whether you can have the capacity if you wanted it right because one of the things that you know I've struggled with is innocent across even co ventures investing and is the worst market the more concentrated. I generally wanna be because the more diversified and the more I'm taking Beta and if I don't believe in Beta at any given time the market then like the best way to actually have Alpha is just for picking my spots and the time of year or you know it is invest more kind of spread out and just take Beta and invest in a bunch of funds that you know whether I don't want to name names like you know a classic fund that might make thirty investments a year and make small investments in a bunch of different companies and almost like indexing early stage How what is the right amount of concentration? Like are you looking for Chris? At a you know a company level or looking at a fund level. Are you looking at Fintech? Healthcare verse marketplace's. How do you think about what the if you're endowment foundation pension and you have one hundred dollars how are you supposed to be getting worse occasionally adventure market you and I think your your observation about you know your you know the the the diversity Alpha sort of Pendulum there is a large part of the rationale and Y. Lp's have gotten more concentrated. I mean for ten or twenty years you know. The illiquidity Bill illiquidity premium or. I mean it's almost like a Beta was the alpha. The asset class generated a healthy return. But as obviously as money came in and and Return assumptions in Alf. Opportunities from illiquidity premium has shrunk. I think the consequence of that or the the strategy shift has to become more concentrated into into you know. Focus on manager selection or other tools to try to reengineer the outfits. So I think there's a lot of commonalities and the way you think about your portfolio in in perhaps the way a lot of LP's have reacted to the market what the right answer is and how that translates into the way you construct a portfolio. Obviously there's you know thousand LP's with different tolerances for risk and diversification but I think You know in terms of the venture portfolio Specifically a you know to my point if you're only making earlier point if you're only making one or two venture betsy year You know directly without a fun to funding one of them You know that means you're you know you're probably pretty concentrated at the manager level and you probably Maybe for some safety risk management. You might focus on Venture funds that were slightly larger scale maybe slightly larger number of underlying portfolio companies to try to try to like you know manage that risk but the it would be hard to do a proverbial. You know small fun doing ten deals because you end up idiots and credit company risk so. I don't have an answer for you on the right math but I think the you know the the concentration tends to concentrated strategy tends to guide. I think some. Lp's to Kinda larger asset managers. Not just because of the scale of the check. They're trying to ripe. Also you know a little bit around the risk the risk management consideration right and they kinda also brings me to another point. Which is you know. There's the The Unicorn Article Pulse Tech Ryan. Serrano like four or five years ago now all of a sudden about the importance of power law and now everything Unicorn how do you think about hitting for average for power When it comes to a portfolio like do you buy into this venture completely driven by power law and by one or two companies Does that or a and maybe it's not either or maybe the answer is hey you know. It's okay to just be driven by power logs. You get enough diversity or you might say hey you know what like? Actually you're going to have a little bit more concentration which maybe you need sometimes in venture hitting a little bit safer but like how do you think about that dynamic between the two you know? I think I I was a skeptic on the on the on the power law sort of Dynamic for a long time I maybe I resisted it. I I wanted to believe that there was Other ways to win in this business and hitting for average was one of those and and not having to be in the top five or ten venture funds to to make that to make that work. I think I want to believe that. I think I've seen enough math. That you know having a deal inside of a fun that returns the fund or something close to it is You know a mathematical is a math mathematical reality. Winning to the the venture business. So I don't know if I have a final answer on that but I think the lesson or something I've I've evolved on a little bit took over the years But I think the one thing that You know any manager probably has experienced when they have that home run type Winner in their portfolio facing. Lp's trying to raise money and trying to convince them that it's a repeatable model. You know it's one thing win. You know a benchmark or name. The name they really established firm out there. That's got those those those types of returns there's enough evidence that it is repeatable or they've they've been able to repeat it And and people aren't super skeptical about it and if I'm meeting a manager in maybe their second fund and I'm looking at their first fund and they've got one home run ball in that portfolio. That that you know return the fund and then some I you know it's almost like you I don't WanNa say you penalize them for for the concentrated return but you you kinda get concerned on repeatability and in that case maybe average is actually a little bit more comforting because it's a repeatable skill set or you've seen more confident in the ability for them to repeat and maybe that Homerun ball was a little bit more luck than skill and so I think it has a little bit to do with the life cycle the manager. And you know you hate to.

"This is a lot of what Chris has been doing his whole career. He's on the side for a while and one of the things about having Chris on the show. Is You know Eric you and I always do all days. I SPEND TIME WITH STARTUP. People Venture Capitalist Founder. Etcetera and like all like quote unquote deep insights. Defend your capital like aren't really that deep insights things we all talk about all that but like Lpzoo like at least to me are like mysterious. They're probably like BC's used to be founders before blogging LP mysterious. I'm not really sure if they're thinking and I wonder if the answer the giving me is actually true and like how they already filled that bucket or asset allocation what is an asset allocation. All that is like super fascinating until it'd be fined you for both of us to talk to Chris a lot about that today. Just zooming out really quick. Wh Why hasn't that changed yet? Who who's going to be the Fred Wilson? Abell peas or or or. Is it going to take a lot longer Chris when you read it online about life L. Piece? I don't really know. What do you call it like when you when all you lt are out there sort of consumer information? Are you reading? Are you reading stuff from managers? Are you from other? Lp's are you reading like like. What are you read? What what newsletter. You subscribe to. What websites are you going to do? You like look up to you for information. I think the The average L. P. probably tries to consume. You know everything. You just mentioned. You know where you spend most of your time. I mean I certainly leaned more heavily into academic papers and things that that you know I tried to glean some sort of you know decision making framework Prom or just a way to think about The industry in finding sort of anomalies or an efficiency industry. But I'm sure you know different. Have Different things they consume. I think one to Eric's question about you. Know who kind of steps into that Kind of a leadership role. I think one thing. He's don't do a fantastic job of is sharing ideas with each other and you know networking with each other and so if you you know within the community we all name the ten or twenty investors that we think probably the very best in the business have one of the more stellar track records. I mean it's not totally transparent but I think there's enough information to kind of Back into who? We think those people probably are if I ask you the same question about LP's. I'm pretty sure nobody knows the answer to that. I mean people turned that the Gaels and some of the endowments is released. But I don't think anyone really knows what the track record is of of the individuals and a little bit of that has to do with information sharing and and lack of transparency at the L. P. level and being able to ascertain like skill levels trust different L. P. N. Chris how did you learn how to be an L. P. LIKE? Was it the first person you worked for? Was it like you read this book and makes a Lotta Sense like who did you? How did he learn how to be converted to learn from? Yeah so I have a little unusual. I've an unusual background at one point. I thought I was going to be a doctor. Have a degree in molecular biology. I worked in the in the healthcare industry for ten years and one day I was I was working at the start up and I'm on my way to work and bumped into a an old colleague of mine who was a doctor and had a startup himself and kind of learned what he was doing and he He was working at my prior firm called Some strategies investment consulting firm. He told me what he was up to. Which is basically sitting on the side of the table. Interviewing Venture Capitalists In deciding which ones to invest in and I had been scratching and clawing at this started per awhile and I said kind of a Holy Holy. Yes moment you know. I can sit on that side of the table interview the BBC's instead of the other way around. And so I asked him how how to get in the business and that was that was how I got started. He hired me a few weeks later and I was off and running how I learned to invest. I mean it was obviously he was a mentor But but my firm you know is an investing consulting firm. There's a lot of smart people around the room and You know I it. I learned by being by by mentorship apprenticeship By the people that have been doing this for for an awful long time and then I think the you know y'all you bring your own experiences table and having a non traditional background I think allows you to you know bring new ideas to the room or just to question the conventional wisdom so we certainly had her own you know. Sorta twists or Ways that we went about the business that might be different than others. But I think you know. Sometimes it's good to bring new blood into the room and and to think about things in a in a slightly different way and when you're interviewing one of these managers What what kind of questions did you ask Chris when you were in new l. p. that you don't ask anymore and what are the things that you care a lot more now that when you were sort of new at the job you didn't put emphasis on that's a really good question I'm not quite sure I've been in it long enough. I can't quite remember what I asked. You know fifteen years ago or whenever it was when I started but I certainly know what high have spent more time focused on the last several years. And I think this gets a little bit too The second part of your question I. We all focus on a lot of the same things. They'll peas team strategy track record. There's there's it's kind of generic you know soup of of things that we all tend to focus on. I think one area that I have learned or or have spent more time on in in addressing with managers this around ideas around persistence and humility And I I kind of think about those is like grit. Persistence being grit and humility being kind of this learning process and I and the persistence piece has a little bit to do with my focus on first time funds and you know emerging managers and the need for those managers coming out of established brand name shops where you know the money either. Hit them in the face or they had you know. Sort of a brand halo where? I'm not sure. It was ever easy but there was just a certain tailwind to the business. Starting a new firm of and trying to raise money and bill trusted. Lp's without that brand behind you is a soul-crushing sort of Endeavor and it's GONNA require persistence so looking for evidence that people have Bootstrap their career in some way. Where they you know overcame adversity and Humility side you know have learned from that and can improve their processes on the other side or improve their judgment on the other side. I actually remember. Kinda started down this path. Maybe a little bit. I was meeting with a manager. One time we invested in them. This is maybe ten years ago now or close to it and I remember. They hadn't lost money on a deal in like seven years it was just a stellar track. Record is completely bulletproof and I remember. Actually actually being worried about that. And you know we're in the business of taking risk and we're in the business of you know making judgment calls and uncertain almost contrarian like situations if you're batting a you know a thousand in that scenario you know either you're lying to me or there's you know you or something. Something nefarious may be wrong. I actually want people to You know we struggle with deal to have the humility to talk to the learning process on that deal and what came out the other side and so one of the things that you mentioned it. Sort of looking at tracker. How hard is that to really figure out? You know my gut. Is You probably looking at an excel sheet? Those dumped out majer promises. All the deals I've ever done and it's like how much they put in. What was the day what mark that we did? The follow on all that stuff. Like what are you looking for? Are you looking for a handful of home runs consistency? You mentioned grits automatic. Maybe a little more consistency that you lean towards but like what is that sort of like a how irony know that this is going to be something that it interesting moment Or what else about you know. Is it a founder reference? What are those moments I'm not sure there's a Ha moments so much as it relates the track record. My aha moments tend to be around the people and And sort of a cultural sort of Alignment or something along those lines. That that that I gravitate to on the track record. I think there's two things that Are Maybe I two things run through my head as you were asking the question? I think there's there's Today's Day and age after a ten year bull market effectively maybe eleven year bull market. Now you know the rising tide syndrome lifting all boats is hard. You know everybody's got a decent track record right now to you. Know sort of this aggregating skill from luck. Is You know particularly challenging. I think at this moment in time and the other thing I think is a little bit more. That's more of a maybe a cyclical issue and and there's a structural issue. I think in in the asset class that I've always sort of wrestle with which is I think we LP's do a particularly poor job or it's particularly hard pressed to risk adjust returns. And you know when you're in a you know I I would watch my traditional asset class peers. My old firm. Who did you know stock and bond and hedge portfolios? They had all kinds of tools to risk adjusted. Returns you know. What sort of tracking did you need to suffer? What kind of volatility? Dude you need to suffer to generate returns. I think private equity just in all of its flavors generally resists you know risk adjusting the the track record you know how much hair was on the deal or you know what sort of Risk for inheriting the fundamentals of the underlying businesses. You invested in You know how much How much cyclicality. You did you suffer. Or the marks are so infrequent you really can't measure volatility so there's just a bunch of dynamics I think it makes it really challenging to risk just The returns so those. I don't know if I was ever good at it but that was one area that we Have always been a lot of time. Thinking about is trying to understand what what the manager is doing with their portfolio portfolio. What kind of risks they are assuming and and you know how did they manage those risks and getting comfortable that we're getting compensated adequately For those dynamics curious how evolution in the founder these dynamic will be similar. Ob Ruby imitated between the BC L. P. Dynamic and one of the things we saw in the founders dynamic. Is that the power they shifted from from VC's to two founders as create value in a way that really had four species to To answer the question what value are really attic a and we even saw this debate on our founders actually better. Vc's than than bees..

And all of a sudden, you're ready to ready to go to war for the team. And as that you're doing the same thing that you get some young guy. And I again, I've always said this like they're gonna get there somehow one way or another they're going to get to the NHL. They're good enough. You may as well make them feel like part of the team right away. And and then when they're part of the team, they're going to be like, the probably gonna nowadays that, you know, the kid comes into the league, he's you know, got a couple years under under his belt. He scores like fifty points is making like five million dollars a year now. So you he's going to be on the team like law, make me friend. Yeah. Exactly. So would you rather have that guy like, you know, playing on the second line and hate you? Or would you rather? Have that guy? Second line going on that guy went to bat for me simmer. That's like one thing that when I looked back being drafted by Pittsburgh is the way they treated their American Hockey League. I would call it. It's own organization because they Jeff back at the gate parrot show to him and that whole staff I was a piece of shit when I went in there. I was a little punk. But but none the less like Elaine Nazar dean, Chris Keller than his Bobby like those guys taught me what it was like to be like a vet handle your fucking business. The like, Elaine Nazar wasn't rushing to be my buddy. There was an aide shepper Asian, but and you kind of looked at him like almost like a father figure with that major respect for him. But he would still time. Visit you'll what'd you get into last night voice. Find trouble guys delay like and then boom right back to his business where you felt like that time special. There was order and it was a team environment. And I took it. That's how I learned. How to be a good teammate. I finally figured it out the Pittsburgh organization. And I think it's almost like we talk about all the time. It gets a little cliche. But the culture thing is huge in some teams habits on teams don't that's why they've been shit something's been shipped for a long time. Now, saying, you're right. You're we gotta get onto the Russian stories because people are fucking drooling at this point for them. Well, before my sim before you go. So when I was in the gauge I'll people need to know, it was the cage L, it was a they tried to make it much much more officially they tried to rival the NHL. It was never going to happen. But you were there when it was the Super League. And that makes it seem at least from what I've heard the complete wild wild west. When I thought I was already in eighteen fifty when I was over there. I don't even know where to start when it comes to this. Because I I when I. I remember it was a lockout right after the year.

"Chris welcome today. One. Great to be back with us a couple of years ago. So what has you energized about the work and ministry of trinity cathedral? These days. We have a lot going on one of the things that has been most important in the last two years. I would say as a covenant partnership we have with AME church am in Little Rock, and that's an ongoing project that ties real meaningful to us. The cathedral recently engaged in a strategic planning process with some interesting values that emerged including beautiful worship, caring community, spiritual formation, community engagement, and artistic expression. How do the arts play a part in the ministry of the cathedral? One thing I like to say sometimes as if if I were in the country in Arkansas and a tornado come through my town. And I saw group of church people coming down the road for getting ready to help us. I'd be hoping it was Baptist. Not a Piscopo because I could set up equipment and make things right? And so I think that it's the of our churches is artistic kind of naturally. And so rather than regret what we can't do. We celebrate what we can. And we are just full of life artistically, especially in music, but another area says, well, and beauty is really an important part of the reality of God. And human beings respond to it can help make us better. And so we we pull out all the stops. And do that the last value in the strategic plan was cathedral? I. Identity say more about the meaning of that. And how it plays out in the community? We want to be a beacon of faith in Little Rock. And I think that something that is unique about cathedrals uniquely part of cathedral identity is that we have a door open on the public square. So that we want ideas that are abroad in the in the world around us to be brought in. Examined in the light of faith and in sent back out enriched in some way. And so we bring in speakers. Parallel to the Clinton library dozen Little Rock and brings in speakers. From around the world to talk about usually the matters of diplomacy and economics and so forth. We bring him the same caliber of speakers with a common denominator that one way or another. They all speak from Christian faith, and they might be talking about the same things that the same speaker might talk about it the Clinton centre. But now, they're they're highlighting the way that their faith bears on those questions. We've had just last fall. We had Jon Meacham talking about his book the soul of America. We've had Maryland Robinson. We have broad range. Theologically we've had people ranging from here at Metaxas to Elaine Pagel's. That's all. If somebody's been baptized in his willing to talk about that. They're they're welcome. You are also the founder of Suma a student theological debate society now based at the beacon center at the university of the south and Swannee Tennessee describe that interesting initiative, and how you're involved these days. I'm still involved with the Suma as the lecturer and theology and debate it's now a program of Salani under the auspices a beacon center, we used to joke six years ago that someday we'd be international body or twenty-fifty. And actually, we were international by the air twenty eighteen a student from the People's Republic of China was well if people from coast to coast across America. This Monday is Martin Luther King junior day in the United States, and you specifically asked to preach on the Sunday. Why was that every year? I take a rating topic of a person or an author. And I just was the case that in two thousand eighteen I decided I was going to read Martin Luther King right about him. But he said, and I the air before ABRAHAM LINCOLN. I like everybody else in America right now. I think we feel like we've lost our stride a certain way. And so it seems to me that it's important to to return to people that uphold what we are should be at s I draw guidance from Ladd and strength from it and inspiration and frankly pride about our country. I mean, even we're at our worst were important, and that we know what it means to be called to be our best. And we. We're your sermon is based on the gospel of John chapter to the first eleven versus would you read it force on the third day? There was a wedding and Qena of Galilee. And the mother of Jesus was there. Jesus and his disciples had also been invited to the wedding when the wind gave out the mother of Jesus said to him they have no wine Jesus said to her woman. What concern is that to you? And to me my hour is not yet. Come his mother said to the servants, do whatever he tells you. Now standing there were six stone water jars for the Jewish rights purification each holding twenty or thirty gallons Jesus said to them fill the jars with water, and they filled them up to the brim. He said to them. Now draw somehow and take it to the chief steward. So they took it when the Stewart tasted the water that had become wine. Did not know where it came from though, the servants who had drawn the water new the Stewart called the bridegroom and said to him everyone serves the good wine first, and then the inferior wine after the gifts have become drunk. But you have kept the good wine until now. Jesus did this the first of his signs in Qena of Galilee and revealed his glory and his disciples believed in him. Chris we look forward to hearing your sermon about this Jesus is first public miracle at the wedding of Qena. Your sermon is entitled water to wine. Thank you for sharing it with us.
