Renaissance Technologies

Style: Quantitative investor

Location: East Setauket, N.Y.

Former math professor is king of the “black box” investors—funds that use top-secret algorithms and invest largely by computer. Shocked peers when he set a target of $100 billion for his latest fund. Charges 5 & 44, a fee structure without peer in the hedge-fund world—but nobody’s complaining. Net worth estimated at $4 billion.

Old Hand: “Simons doesn’t hire anyone who actually knows where Wall Street is. It’s all Ph.D.’s over there. They use algorithms that nobody understands but seem to work very well.”

Hedge-Fund Investor: “Along with Dalio, co-king of the quants.”

Young Buck: “Among other things, Simons is surely one of the top-paid managers over the past few years.”
