Antony Peacock

Antony is a software engineer in the trading industry. He started working life in the games industry in 2004. Since then he moved into finance before making the transition into quantitative analytics in investment banking which proved a natural domain for an interest in high-performance computing and numerical techniques. This led him to the trading domain where he has since worked for hedge funds, market makers and proprietary trading houses in the low-latency trading domain. Most recently he’s worked on developing a graduate training program and has become directly involved in a webinar series on algorithmic trading due to the lack of resources the industry provides to those newcomers aspiring to break in. He has an ongoing interest in the ISO C++ standardisation process and hopes one day to finally see some of the papers he has co-authored make it into the C++ standard. He currently works as a software engineer at Jane Street, developing in Ocaml.
