For this week's live discussion at Inside the Market, we're joined by Brad Radin, lead portfolio manager for the IA Clarington Global Opportunities Fund.

Mr. Radin has been in the investing business for nearly 20 years and had previously worked for Franklin-Templeton, managing the award-winning Templeton Global Smaller Companies Fund between 1999 and 2011.
