Masters in Business: Dan Alpert

Barry Ritholtz interviews Dan Alpert in this week's "Masters in Business" podcast.

This week, the “Masters in Business” radio podcast features investment banker Dan Alpert, founder and managing partner of Westwood Capital. Alpert is the author of "The Age of Oversupply: Overcoming the Greatest Challenge to the Global Economy."

Alpert created the first collateralized debt obligations backed by commercial mortgage-backed securities, and one of the very first real-estate investment trusts. Over the past 30 years working in finance, he has developed expertise in distressed assets, structured products and real-estate financing.

Listen to the podcast here, on Apple iTunes or on SoundCloud. All of our prior podcasts are available on iTunes.

Next week, I speak with Jim McCann, chief executive officer and founder of 1-800 Flowers.
