Watch the full interview with Steve Eisman of 'The Big Short' fame who is now super bullish banks

Neuberger Berman portfolio manager Steven Eisman shared his views on the market and Donald Trump's election in an exclusive interview Monday on CNBC's "Squawk Box."

Eisman is known for being one of the few investors to profitably bet against subprime mortgage securities during the financial crisis. He was a key character in Michael Lewis' best-selling book "The Big Short" and was depicted by actor Steve Carrell in the movie based on the book.

On the Donald Trump's agenda: "The financial system is going to be at least partially deregulated. I think over the next couple of years there is going to be more leverage. And this will be a golden age of investing in financial stocks," he said.

When asked if he would be very long financial stocks: "As long as I can be...and that is what I am," Eisman replied.

He also discusses:

  • Financial regulation
  • The philosophical difference between Republicans and Democrats
  • How he invested the day after the election
