Who We Are

Interdisciplinary Thinkers and Business Builders

Quantitative Rigor
Trade Optimization
Founder, Head of Portfolio 
Allocation and Strategy
Andy’s career spans several decades from his early work pioneering the use of quantitative methodologies to trade options. He focused his attention on the applied understanding of pricing between markets rather than in isolation to identify opportunities in market structure and behavioral eccentricities, which has become the cornerstone of his investment philosophy. He has launched funds including Deephaven Market Neutral Fund, which grew to $300M under management, and Whitebox Advisors which grew to become a $6B fund with offices in New York, Minneapolis, Austin, London and Sydney.

Andy’s insight allowed him to predict the mortgage crisis long before the event, which was covered in his book: “Panic: The Betrayal of Capitalism by Wall Street and Washington,” and was celebrated by The New York Times for its foresight.
Managing Partner
Chris focuses on alpha-driven portfolio construction across various asset classes. He joins the firm from Whitebox Advisors where he headed their quant group since 2007.

His previous work has yielded several systematic credit strategies, most recently in corporate credit. Chris earned his PhD in applied mathematics from the University of Minnesota, where his thesis involved modeling and optimization for portfolios of risky assets. He remains as affiliated faculty in their math finance program.
