Secrets of HFT firms like Renaissance Teechnologies

Another very useful opinion on HFT firms including Ren Tec:

The benchmark for me is Renaissance Technologies, founded by Jim Simons and his philosophy regarding the people that work for the company. There are no MBA’s, Economists or Wall Street broker/traders but PHDs in Mathematics and Physics, and Computer system engineers to keep the back office running. Information about the company is hard to come by, and it a closed shop see their web site https://www.rentec.com/Home.action?index=true . If you do your own research as I have, you can build a picture of how the company may work (You will actually never really know as they are very guarded about talking to anyone outside the company about their activities  – The Renaissance Technologies Investor website is by invitation only.).


This may be a start if you are interested = Inside a Moneymaking Machine Like No Other – The Medallion Fund, an employees-only offering for the quants at Renaissance Technologies, is the blackest box in all of finance. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-11-21/how-renaissance-s-medallion-fund-became-finance-s-blackest-box


FYI for interest, – Renaissance Technologies, Two Sigma, Leman Capital – The Triumph Of The Quants
