Gregory Zuckerman has spent more than twenty-five years covering some of the biggest stories in the private fund industry. Along the way, he developed a keen interest in the incredible investing prowess of Jim Simons and his firm Renaissance Technologies. And Greg wanted to write a book about it. Though reluctant at first, Simons and dozens of current and former Renaissance employees eventually gave Greg unprecedented access. The result was his latest book and New York Times Best Seller, “The Man Wh
o Solved the Market: How Jim Simons Launched the Quant Revolution.”

In this episode, Greg talks about the process of writing the book, some of the biggest surprises and hurdles he encountered along the way, and the reaction he’s gotten since its publication. He also talks about his own career and shares some of his insights about the broader private fund industry.
