Seeking the Supergenius: The Life of a High-Frequency Trader
WorldQuant is established after a twelve-year history as part of a leading hedge fund
WorldQuant traces its beginnings to 1995, when it began as a group within a larger hedge fund. Over the years, the group's strategies evolved, its operations expanded and its trading became more and more competitive. The group's business model evolved from a single-trader system to a complex of researchers, traders and technologists pushing the limits of quantification and automation.
In 2007, the group became WorldQuant, an external investment manager serving the leading hedge fund from which it originated. WorldQuant will continue to strive to adapt its processes and thinking to changing market conditions for that fund's benefit.
