Chief Financial Officer
2008 - Current

The D. E. Shaw group pursues attractive and sustainable risk-adjusted returns on the capital we invest for our clients. The firm invests globally using a broad array of strategies in both public and private markets. Widely recognized as a pioneer in quantitative investing, particularly in equities, futures, and options, the firm also has formidable expertise in areas that involve fundamental analysis or portfolio manager discretion, such as credit, energy, and macro investing. Regardless of the particular strategy, each investment decision is made in the context of a rigorous analytical approach that seeks to carefully identify and weigh potential risks and rewards. The firm's investment activities fall into two broad areas: Alternative Investments Strategies focused on the delivery of absolute returns, with low targeted correlation to traditional assets like equities, account for around $21 billion of the firm's investment capital. Our alternative investment program dates to 1989 and consists of both larger, core multi-strategy investment vehicles and more focused, strategy-specific investment products. Benchmark-Relative Investments A suite of long-only and "130/30" equity investment strategies, in either commingled investment vehicles or separately managed accounts, collectively represent approximately $7 billion of the firm's investment capital. These strategies, begun in the year 2000, enable institutional investors to customize their exposure to a particular benchmark index and to choose a targeted level of risk.

Boards & Committees
Director

Moore Capital Management generally bases investment decisions on their analysis of fundamental economic, financial and political events, their analysis of the markets themselves and their analysis of the potential risk and reward of a market position. The firm mainly uses fundamental and price and market analysis. In weighing factors to make investment decisions, they pay close attention to each investment's risk-reward potential, how it fits into the risk profile of the entire portfolio and whether it is consistent with their global macro view.
