Ken Griffin Video

A reader left me a comment and suggested this interesting video about Ken Griffin.

Ken founded Citadel at the age of 22 with $4.2m. He started two funds from his dorm room at Harvard, and he claims that in between classes he would make trades. His first 'seeder' was Frank Meyer of Glenwood Capital who was amazed at Ken's success and his ROI. Frank provided $1m for Ken to invest while Ken was only 19, and the result exceeded his expectation.

Here is a video on Opalesque.tv in which Frank Meyer describes the keys of seeding new managers, as he did with Ken.

Anna's thought of the day:

It doesn't matter how old you are, as far as you are
good at investment and good at making money for yourself and others.
