Your Host: Oliver Schmalholz
After banking millions of dollars when he sold his first company, Oliver realized the traditional discretionary buy-and hold long only portfolio wasn’t the holy grail when the Tech Bubble burst. The advisors still made the same fat fees even though his account suffered a major draw-down.
Since then he has only been interested in data driven investment strategies that work in bull and bear markets. He developed various event strategies and went from nothing to trading over $4m per day in US stocks. He then co-founded News Quantified to allow the investing community to generate profits and manage risk utilizing news analytics.
