Bill Laggner went into the investment industry in the late 1980s, initially as a stockbroker; then moved to the buy side at Fidelity Investments out of Houston, TX. Kevin Duffy and Bill Laggner are the brains behind the Bearing Fund. Bill met Kevin in the ’90s and both cut their investing teeth on the short side of the tech bubble markets which imploded in 2000. Bearing Asset Management was formed in 2002. Bearing created the “Bearing Credit Bubble Index" in 2003, which identified the credit enablers of the biggest private sector bubble over the last 100 years. This allowed Bearing Fund to capitalize on the unwind of the last bubble while positioning the fund for the third and final bubble, the sovereign, stimulus bubble currently underway.
