Aaron Fifield interviews: @HaimBodek
There’s a very special guest on the podcast this week, who I’m excited to introduce…
His name is Haim Bodek, although some refer to him as ‘The Algo Arms Dealer’ (and I totally understand why).
Haim began his trading career at Hull Trading, a prestigious firm well known for driving forward innovation in the domain of automated trading. Following Hull, Haim then went into significant roles at Goldman Sachs, and UBS – which are all discussed during the interview.
But to further set the scene, in 2007 Haim founded Trading Machines, a high frequency trading operation. At the peak, Trading Machines accounted for 0.5% of all options trading volume, with a team of 25 (one of who, was Bryan Wiener of EP 040).
