This sounds like a joke to me. This guy is presumably from a rich family and goes to NYU, and yet he could not get any real SA / FT jobs? He literally has no work experience. In addition, my experience with amateur quant investors (especially with the market we've been in for the past few years) is that they get a bloated sense of self esteem and confidence because their simple models (e.g. filter by industry, EBITDA margin, ROIC, etc., buy P/E below 12x, sell above 18x, etc.) gave them great returns, despite the fact that they have very little knowledge of the fundamentals of their investment.
Thoughts? Is he for real or just another garage band hedge fund? Anybody know him in person?
