My favorite answers:

How do you mix quantitative asset allocation with qualitative views?

Empirical or theoretical insights that have shaped your thinking

Why is the first principal component a proxy for the market portfolio?

How do I graphically represent the evolution of a covariance matrix over time?

Which approach dominates? Mathematical modelling or data mining?
