Rigor + Intellectual Curiosity
Our teams of talented researchers, quantitative technologists, portfolio experts, traders and business professionals together bring a combination of academic knowledge, market experience and intellectual curiosity to each of their roles. Working in a casual, open and collaborative environment, teams strive to provide our clients and partners with the highest levels of investment excellence, and to improve the science of investment management.
Millburn's leadership team includes a stable core of highly-experienced individuals at the Executive and Investment Committee levels. This core is complemented by a set of talented and experienced team members heading critical operating areas of the firm, providing for continuity as we build towards our next 40 years of operation.
Our Research team favors an open, academic environment as opposed to a silo approach, encouraging idea generation and cross-fertilization while benefiting from close peer review and constructive criticism. The team is focused on a constant, iterative process of improving portfolio construction and risk-adjusted returns for each investment program we trade.
While the environment is open, the range of different skill sets available within the team still allows for the direction of projects to focus on each individual's key strengths. Researchers include computer scientists, engineers, physicists and mathematics experts with education from top schools—individuals who have a passion for finding structure in noisy data, and translating that into actionable investment strategies.
Key to the support of, and the enabling of, our Research team and the other functions of the firm are our technologists, who seek to stay on top of the latest and most robust tools and techniques, with the goal of improving the way we invest, measure and run our business.
Our Technology team includes individuals proficient in the efficient collection, cleaning and organizing of vast arrays of data, but also people with the knowledge of how best to apply this data to the various problems that our teams, and our investors, seek to solve.
Our execution specialists straddle theory and practice, and are integrated tightly with both our Research and Technology teams. Execution specialists provide trading oversight of our systematic trading processes, but also help with the identification of new markets and the development and support of new research projects.
Our execution team members monitor more than 150 global markets on a 24-hour basis, leveraging their understanding of the market micro-structure to look for opportunities to lower execution costs, reduce market impact and provide valuable market-based feedback to other teams. The skill sets of these individuals encompasses expertise in computer science, econometrics and global markets.
