James Simons’ Speech At MIT (Renaissance Technologies, Medallion Fund Founder)

So it is safest to just buy the SP500 and forget about it. And add a bond fund in your simple asset allocation relative to your investing time-frame and risk tolerance. With Clinton and other Democrats advertising their credentials with respect to protecting and expanding jobs for the middle class and connected advantages such as a reasonable retirement, an examination of Renaissance’s own retirement plan is telling. The notice basically granted an exemption to Renaissance that permits it to circumvent a key DOL rule that prevents organizations from putting more than a certain % of its own company stock into employees’ retirement accounts.

And here is the footnote to accompany its annual filing in which Renaissance states it has obtained an exemption from the DOL permitting it to not comply with the prohibited transaction rule. The final sentence is spectacular in its deception as it states the administrator (which is Renaissance) believes that it complies with requirements of the IRC or Internal Income Code. Lengthy Term Capital Management was the hedge fund founded (1994) by legendary Salomon bond trader John Meriwether with each other with Robert Merton and Myron Scholes, the Nobel prize-winning academics behind possibilities pricing theory.

Soon after many years of superb returns (more than 40% in one particular year), the fund blew up in the wake of the Russian debt default and had to be bailed out by a consortium of banks organized by the Fed (1998). In a tiny more than a year, the prime broker takes back its $9 billion, plus some extra funds for its troubles, and Renaissance requires back whatever was left, the $1 billion it had place in, minus the funds that the prime broker takes, plus any profits (or minus any losses).

Renaissance put some money into a pot, its prime broker place a lot far more income into the pot, Renaissance managed the pot, and later the prime broker got its funds back and Renaissance had the upside and the threat. At the end of the year, the prime broker’s loan is repaid with interest and fees, and Renaissance keeps the levered upside or downside in the account. But it writes a three-year American contact choice on the subsidiary’s performance to Renaissance. As an alternative, each and every option, every year, offered a cash payment to the hedge fund that exercised the selection. Em segundo lugar aparece Quantum Fund de George Soros, que conseguiu 1.700% no mesmo período.

Addendum: The book is about technologies globe-wide, and policies in the developed globe, specifically the background to feasible new nuclear create in the USA, UK and the rest of Europe. Nonetheless, as Bill says, there is no need for a renaissance in France, Russia, China, South Africa and India where nuclear fission reactor deployment is continuing and expanding.
