    Great success story. Thanks for posting.

    Hedge funds run by women make twice as much...very interesting.
  3. Shill, other people's money, not her own.

    lmao. What? She was a grains trader for Cargill and now has over $1B in AUM and you are calling her a shill?

  5. Those numbers are skewed. Its for years 2000-2009 (why did they do a 9 year study instead of a 10 year or 20 year unless they were trying to make the numbers work) Also in 2008 her fund was flat while most hedge funds went down 50%. She got lucky and she brought up the average of the 2 or 3 women hedge fund managers to make it look like women make twice as much. They don't. If they did, there would be a hell of a lot more women traders out there.

    And I think the only reason she has returned an avg 12% per year for the last 10 years (big whoop, 12%?) is because she traded gold. If Gold didnt do what it did in the last 10 years and stayed flat, she would've had some of the worst returns ever.
  6. On the show, "Million dollar traders" the woman on there turned out to be the best one out of the group.

    Also, I think Nodoji is a good example of a woman who trades very well.

    Seems like women always got better grades in school too lol just sayin. :)

    I think it's because females have a natural tendency to be discreet.

    They don't just jump into a business and hope to make by on whatever they got. They're more risk-aversive and patient and are not done 'till they "got it".
