CAIA New York presents: Author Talk with Gregory Zuckerman on The Man Who Solved the Market

Jim Simons is the greatest moneymaker in modern financial history. No other investor can touch his record. Since 1988, Renaissance’s signature Medallion fund has generated average annual returns of 66%. The firm has earned profits of more than $100 billion—Simons is worth $23 billion.

Drawing on unprecedented access to Simons and dozens of current and former employees, Zuckerman, a veteran Wall Street Journal investigative reporter, tells the gripping story of how a world-class mathematician and former code breaker mastered the market. Simons pioneered a data-driven, algorithmic approach that’s sweeping the world. Zuckerman’s most recent book, The Man Who Solved the Market, is a portrait of a modern-day Midas who remade markets in his own image, but failed to anticipate how his success would impact his firm and his country. It’s also a story of what Simons’s revolution means for the rest of us.

Join us for a virtual zoom talk by Gregory and Q&A moderated by CAIA NY Chair Andrew Saunders.
