NEW YORK TIMES AND SUNDAY TIMES BUSINESS BESTSELLER THE GRIPPING STORY OF HOW A WORLD-CLASS MATHEMATICIAN AND FORMER CODE BREAKER MASTERED THE MARKET When Jim Simons hired physicists, mathematicians and computer scientists to form a hedge fund, experts scoffed. These people would become some of the richest in the world, amassing piles of data and building algorithms that would find the deeply hidden patterns in global markets. Taking the name Renaissance, the company's executives soon began exerting influence outside of the financial world. While Simons became a major figure in scientific research, education, and liberal politics, his senior executive Robert Mercer has been credited with Trump's victorious presidential candidacy and helping steer the UK towards Brexit. Drawing on unprecedented access to Simons and dozens of his employees, Zuckerman, a veteran Wall Street Journal investigative reporter, paints a portrait of a modern-day Midas who remade markets in his own image, but failed to anticipate how his success would impact his firm, his country and the world.

The new investment-decision model, developed by Dr. Dan Geller, behavioral economist for financial services at Analyticom, found that decisions made by the reptilian brain are bad for investing and have contributed to the recent market volatility.” “While the scientifically predictable investing model is designed to help investors respond to market fluctuations in a more analytical way, it also highlights why many retail investors remain under the control of their reptilian brain.” Steve Randall Wealth Professionals Publication Keywords: Predictable Investment, Volatility, Financial, Invest, Behavior, Scientifically, Model, Money, Fluctuations, Investing Philosophy, Investing, Investing in Stocks, Investing for Dummies, Investing for Beginners, Investing Books, Investing Model, Investing 101, Stock Investing, Finance and Investing, Dr. Dan Geller

WINNER OF THE 2016 FT & McKINSEY BUSINESS BOOK OF THE YEAR AWARD, this is the biography of one of the titans of financial history over the last fifty years. Born in 1926, Alan Greenspan was raised in Manhattan by a single mother and immigrant grandparents during the Great Depression but by quiet force of intellect, rose to become a global financial 'maestro'. Appointed by Ronald Reagan to Chairman of the Federal Reserve, a post he held for eighteen years, he presided over an unprecedented period of stability and low inflation, was revered by economists, adored by investors and consulted by leaders from Beijing to Frankfurt. Both data-hound and eligible society bachelor, Greenspan was a man of contradictions. His great success was to prove the very idea he, an advocate of the Gold standard, doubted: that the discretionary judgements of a money-printing central bank could stabilise an economy. He resigned in 2006, having overseen tumultuous changes in the world's most powerful economy. Yet when the great crash happened only two years later many blamed him, even though he had warned early on of irrational exuberance in the market place. Sebastian Mallaby brilliantly shows the subtlety and complexity of Alan Greenspan's legacy. Full of beautifully rendered high-octane political infighting, hard hitting dialogue and stories, The Man Who Knew is superbly researched, enormously gripping and the story of the making of modern finance.
