Sell side – started out in retail in ‘95 now institutional since 2000. Did some risk arb in the 90s, when I took this alias and I guess it stuck. Arb strategies are my main interest (risk/quant/index arb and others), though the field is so crowded now, margins are terrible on the equity side, so I’ve turned to Fixed income more and more. I’ll try to stick to the facts, and not argue opinions. I’ve learned over a long time that you cannot convince anyone of anything on the internet. So I’ll just let the facts speak for themselves and let people draw the conclusion that they want. Should I fail in that endeaver, and human nature to express oneself kicks in - any opinions I express are accidental and do not reflect those of my company or any affiliate. Or possibly even me. Just go back to the facts. Thats good advice for anybody, honestly.
