When we think of extraordinary investors, names like Warren Buffett, George Soros, and Ray Dalio might come to mind. But how about Jim Simons, founder of Renaissance Technologies? He’s referred to as the greatest money maker in modern financial history, generating over $100 billion in profits….yet his life story has been a relative secret to many.
In his new bestselling book, The Man Who Solved the Market, author Gregory Zuckerman looks into the world of Simons, who is now 81 years-old, and how his data-driven, algorithmic approach to investing has had unexpected, and far reaching implications on our world.
Zuckerman is a Senior Writer at The Wall Street Journal and a three-time winner of the Gerald Loeb award.
