He only hires those who know nothing about Wall Street. Yet, Simons became the greatest investor in modern history. I set out to figure out how he and his colleagues did it.(less)

Gregory Zuckerman answered Vikramjit Singh's question: Gregory Zuckerman
Good question. My guess is he realized I had spoken to so many people at the firm or associated with the firm, so he wanted to make sure we had some input on the story. But to be clear -- he didn't share any data or information related to their tradi See Full Answer

“Simons shared a few life lessons with the school’s audience: “Work with the smartest people you can, hopefully smarter than you . . . be persistent, don’t give up easily. Be guided by beauty . . . it can be the way a company runs, or the way an experiment comes out, or the way a theorem comes out, but there’s a sense of beauty when something is working well, almost an aesthetic to it.”
Gregory Zuckerman, The Man Who Solved the Market: How Jim Simons Launched the Quant Revolution

“Simons and his team are among the most secretive traders Wall Street has encountered, loath to drop even a hint of how they’d conquered financial markets, lest a competitor seize on any clue. Employees avoid media appearances and steer clear of industry conferences and most public gatherings. Simons once quoted Benjamin, the donkey in Animal Farm , to explain his attitude: “‘God gave me a tail to keep off the flies. But I’d rather have had no tail and no flies.’ That’s kind of the way I feel about publicity.”
Gregory Zuckerman, The Man Who Solved the Market: How Jim Simons Launched the Quant Revolution

“We’re right 50.75 percent of the time . . . but we’re 100 percent right 50.75 percent of the time,” Mercer told a friend. “You can make billions that way.”
