#9 Victor Niederhoffer – The Market Speculator

Speaking to Legends

Victor Niederhoffer is one of the most famous investors and a true pioneer. After rubbing shoulders with a few of the future Nobel Laureates at the University of Chicago, he started a trading firm and made $20 million from the starting capital of $50k within 6 months. In the 90s, he was the right hand man of George Soros and with a 34% rate of return over 20 years, in 1996, he was recognised as the world’s best trader. However, next year he was on the wrong side of the trade and lost all of the capital. In this episode, we discuss the emergence of quant investing, how he started trading for Soros, what are some of the lessons he learnt while being an active market participant for 60 years straight and why he think that Jesse Livermore was a horrible trader.For links and more information see our episode show notes on our website.We value your feedback and we would appreciate any suggestions for improvement.

Victor Niederhoffer: Lessons of Making and Losing a Fortune

Masters in Business

Bloomberg View columnist Barry Ritholtz interviews the fascinating Victor Niederhoffer, a nationally ranked squash champion and former Berkeley professor of finance and statistics. An undeniably brilliant man who was still unable to adequately manage risk, he offers crucial lessons for all traders. In his first book, "The Education of a Speculator," he reveals the risk-embracing style that created his first fortune. In his follow-up, "Practical Speculation," he almost -- but doesn’t quite -- accept responsibility for the prior disaster. It was published before the devastating second set of losses suffered during the credit crisis. Learn more about your ad-choices at https://www.iheartpodcastnetwork.com
