Faculty Prof. Harry Kat
Expertise creates funds that generate returns with predefined statistical properties
Author Sona Blessing
Faculty Name
I have known Harry for over 20 years, initially at the European Options Exchange in Amsterdam and later in several capacities in London. He has always been a very creative and “out-of-the-box” kind of guy. He told us about his FundCreator idea and we were immediately interested. Over the last two years we have watched the FundCreator project develop from being a theoretical concept into the sophisticated, highly practical platform that it is today.
