Mahmood1
Co-founder & CEO
Mahmood Noorani
Mahmood is an experienced macro investor with a background as a rates derivatives trader, macro proprietary trader and macro hedge fund Portfolio Manager.
He started researching quantitative investment processes several years ago and founded QI in 2014. His research into quantitative methods was motivated by a conviction that traditional macro investment processes no longer worked as they had previously, that market structure was changing and that a new approach was needed to understand financial market dynamics.
Mahmood started his career at Morgan Stanley and has since worked for firms including UBS, Credit Suisse, BlueCrest Capital and Citi Capital Advisors Global Macro Fund. He holds a B.SC and M.Sc in Economics from the LSE.
