He had a number of years where he made returns for his clients in excess of 40%, while limiting their risk to a worst ever peak-to-trough drawdown of 12%. ...More With over 30 years of investment experience, Hirst has personally traded over $200 billion in notional value of futures contracts. Hirst implemented some of the first computerized trading systems in the early 1990s, using artificial intelligence, evolutionary algorithms, and digital signal processing. He has received many awards and top rankings for his investment products, and speaks at conferences on risk in portfolio construction. Since 2006, Hirst has continued to be responsible for designing and investing fixed income portfolios for endowments and insurance companies, but has been primarily a consultant, serving on a number of boards and in other non-executive roles, while pursuing his avocational and philanthropic interests.
