Book Club – October 2021
October 20: 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm Virtual
October’s book club selection is The Man Who Solved the Market: How Jim Simons Launched the Quant Revolution by Gregory Zuckerman.
From the publisher: “Drawing on unprecedented access to Simons and dozens of current and former employees, Zuckerman 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.” The book is a “portrait of a modern-day Midas who remade the markets in his own image, but failed to anticipate how his success would impact his firm and his country.”
