Hello, everybody. Brian here from swanlabs.net. On March 25th, an insightful article was shared with me via my usual source. The piece originated from eFinancialCareers.com and reveled in the surprising new hiring trend within high-frequency trading firms: recruiting video game CEOs and former UBS directors.

Usually, these wouldn’t be the people you’d expect leading the charge in high-frequency trading, but from an executive standpoint, it can make a lot of sense. It’s interesting to note that pathways into a hedge fund or high-frequency trading are not always straightforward.

An individual to highlight in this unique hiring trend is Heath Newton, who joined Susquana as a software engineer. Having spent nine years at Bloomberg and thirteen years as the CEO of independent game studio INOVAE, Heath offers an unconventional background to this financial niche. Another mover in this space is Domenico Mangieri, who’s pathway into Jump Trading was a little more traditional – starting in finance with an AI firm Altair before joining UBS and Morgan Stanley.

I found this development quite fascinating – these unusual hiring patterns opens up more interesting ways to enter the high-frequency trading industry. So, stay tuned, and don’t forget to pay attention to my links for Discord, Substack, and the books I have on offer. Have a good day!
