64 The Trader-less Hedge Fund with Dave Sanderson of KFL Capital Management

“2014 may be viewed as the year of the machines, or the start of this phase of machines.” – Dave Sanderson (Tweet)

In this year-end-review, we take a look at how 2014 might be seen many years into the future. Is this when “trader-less” systematic trading caught on? We take you into the workings of a 1-year-old trading technology company, how they succeeded, and where they are going in the future.

Thanks for listening and please welcome back Dave Sanderson.
