Full Interview With Billionaire Lasry On Trump, Biggest Market Risk And Comic Book Investing (CNBC)
Billionaire hedge fund manager Marc Lasry shared his market views in an exclusive interview with CNBC’s Scott Wapner on Wednesday. Lasry is chief executive officer of Avenue Capital Group.

You’re going to have less regulation. I think if you have this 2 to 3 percent or 3 to 4 percent GDP growth that’s actually very good for equities,” he said. “So I would tell you equities this year should be up at least 10 percent.” On what can spoil the party: “The biggest risk we’ve got is something we don’t talk about, which is systemic risk. And that’s really what you got out there with European banks. And it’s still there,” he said.
