How did you get started managing money?

I started on Wall Street in 1983 in a Merrill Lynch training program. Prior to that, I was fortunate enough to spend a few summers on a trading desk. When I joined Merrill Lynch in 1983, I was shipped off to Europe for about a year, where I learned a great deal about the international markets and the way they operate, particularly on the equities side.

And after working for Merrill Lynch?

I was recruited by Goldman Sachs and returned to New York. There I was exposed to emerging trading and analytical technologies, both in portfolio restructuring as well as trading, through some of my larger institutional clients. I was working with a lot of large hedge funds, arbitrageurs and big index-type companies.

Was your educational background mathematical?

Actually, it was a smattering of finance and computer science. I did my undergraduate work at Cornell University and received an MBA from New York University. I was fortunate to be exposed to a lot of very bright people. Many new creative, innovative techniques were evolving. The thing that really struck me which backs into where I am today is that there are a lot of ways to make money in the markets. A lot of my clients were making real money in the markets. I was exposed to the good, the bad and the ugly in money management: firms that did well, those that did okay and those that did poorly.

What kind of ideas did you come away with?

I felt that inherent in the market environment the opportunity to make money was there, but you had to have an edge. I thought that the edge could be technology-driven that's where I thought the future would be.
