I moderated a panel yesterday on systematic trading in Austin, Texas. The panel included Salem Abraham. If you ever get the chance to meet Salem or hear him talk, take it. He is easily one of the most interesting people and trend followers you will meet.
This event was put on by The University of Texas MBA Hedge Fund Organization and brings together “names” in the industry every year. This year the keynote was given by Byron Wien the Chief Investment Officer of Pequot Capital Management. Wien is formerly of Morgan Stanley.
