Two Sigma Investments, LP and Affiliates, 2019 Case Study - Includes a Strategy Comparison for Two Sigma vs. D. E. Shaw - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Case Study: Two Sigma Investments, LP and Affiliates" company profile has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

In this comprehensive and unprecedented 65-page, 67-exhibit, and 16,100-word case study, the publisher details the structure, operating strategies and trading strategies of quantitative hedge fund powerhouse, Two Sigma Investments, LP and affiliates.

Along with a chronology of notable developments and collection of data from its launch until mid-2019, this analysis also includes comparisons with other legendary quantitative trading firms, including (principally) David Shaw's eponymous D. E. Shaw & Co., Inc.; Izzy Englander's Millennium Management, LLC; and Jim Simons' Renaissance Technologies, LLC.

The youngest of the four most successful active alpha extraction players - and second youngest overall - on II's 2018 top 20 all-time net gainers list, Two Sigma was founded in 2001 by two former D.E. Shaw executives, mathematician John Overdeck and computer scientist David Siegel - along with a third co-founder, Mark Pickard (Tudor Investment's former chief financial officer, who retired in 2006).

Two Sigma is arguably the last of the second-generation quant powerhouses to be established - and just as the third-generation players, most of them proprietary trading firms (or, prop shops) with their highest-performance technologies and hyperactive speed strategies, are heating up.

What follows from here is ultimately a story centered around the part of Two Sigma - the original engine and driving force within what is now an increasingly diversified trading, investment, advisory, market-making, technology, analytics, private equity and venture capital operation - that we can see from the available data; the regulatory data exhaust from the original market-neutral, statistical arbitrage strategy launched in April 2002.
