Palm Beach Hedge Fundee Donates $125 Million to University of Chicago

Way to go, Ken !!

 

BY Sharon Donnelly– Palm Beach Daily News

 

In academia, there are the guys who teach economics, theorize economics, write economics and win Nobel Prizes in economics, and then there’s the guy who strides in, slaps a horse gagger on the table and shows what real money is.

That guy is Ken Griffin.

The University of Chicago has announced that the seasonal Palm Beach resident is the donor of $125 million, earmarked for the Department of Economics. It brings Griffin’s total support of the department to $150 million and is the second-largest gift in the school’s history.

That’s right, second-largest. The first is $300 million […] Read more

PBHFA’s Sponsor Castle Ridge Featured In The Economist

PBHFA’s Sponsor Castle Ridge Featured In The Economist

May 25th, 2017– The Economist

MACHINE-LEARNING is beginning to shake up finance. A subset of artificial intelligence (AI) that excels at finding patterns and making predictions, it used to be the preserve of technology firms.

From 2019, anyone seeking to become a “chartered financial analyst”, a sought-after distinction in the industry, will need AI expertise to pass his exams.

Despite the […] Read more
