How are new technologies, used by Wall Street firms, impacting their hiring decisions. Ronen Rub, R Squared Logic
Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and other Wall Street firms continue to be among the first to use the latest technologies to lift revenues and cut costs. What are the major problems which they seek to solve using new technologies? Which types of hardware and software are in big demand? How is this impacting their tech hiring? Are fintech startups a threat to the growth and profitability of Wall Street firms, as the venture capitalists in Silicon Valley foresee? These are among the issues to be discussed by Ronen Rub.
Ronen Rub, founder of RSquared, was earlier head of Application Development at MSD Capital, Michael Dell’s family office for 10 years; Chief Technology Officer at Waterfall Asset Management, a New York based credit manager; and leadership roles at Tradeworx, a FinTech start-up that focused on real-time analytical tools and wealth management applications. Ronen founded Macron Logic and was the co-founder of SYNEX. He earned a degree in computer science from Brooklyn College.
