Hi, I'm Jakob. I work as a quantitative researcher and trader for hedge funds whilst living a nomadic global lifestyle. Currently I head up the area of Systematic Market Making and AI Trading Research at a European High-Frequency fund. I am also the Founder and Managing Director of Altum Intelligence, an artificial intelligence and machine learning consultancy house.
Originally Czech by nationality, but born in Germany, I spent most of my life growing up in the UK. My background is a Masters Degree in Computer Science from the University of Southampton's world renowned Electronics & Computer Science department.
In my spare time I jump out of planes, surf waves, climb mountains and generally try to enjoy life to its fullest.
I specialise in the applications of artificial intelligence in financial markets, managing quantitative investment opportunities, as well as AI applications in other more novel areas. I also manage a private personal portfolio of angel investments, primarily in exciting start-up companies that are pushing the limits of innovation in the AI space.
Want to work with me? Have an exciting new opportunity? Fancy booking me for an event?
