AI for Portfolio Insight
Jan Szilagyi is the CEO and co-founder of Toggle AI, a generative AI startup that uses machine learning to turn institutional-grade data into insights for investors of all stripes. Szilagyi spent most of his career with Stanley Druckenmiller at Duquesne Capital. He was co-CIO of global macro at Lombard Odier and also managed portfolios at Fortress under Michael Novogratz. Jan has a Ph.D. in economics from Harvard, and BA and MA degrees in mathematics and economics from Yale.
I was very eager to talk to Jan about his cutting-edge work of actually applying artificial intelligence to help portfolio managers and analysts. When I first met Jan three years ago, he was already ahead of the curve in using advanced models to digest huge amounts of investment data and prices in a way that was useful and didn’t require data science training to use. We talk about Jan’s experience at Duquesne and Fortress, the founding of Toggle AI, how to think about how AI is being applied to the financial world, hiring AI talent, and how to speed run a Ph.D. Please enjoy my excellent conversation with Jan Szilagyi.
