My guest today is Paul Mulvaney, known as the trend following trader who made over 100 percent in 2008. He graduated from Manchester University in 1985 with a First Class Honours degree in Computer Science & Mathematics.  He completed the one-year Management Science program at Imperial College, London in 1986, earning an MSc with Distinction. The focus of his Master’s thesis was computerized arbitrage models for interest and exchange rate trading. After university, Paul held posts in derivatives and foreign exchange trading at Midland Montagu, Bankers Trust Company and NatWest Markets before joining Merrill Lynch in September 1993. At Merrill Lynch, he managed several of the firm’s major options portfolios, including Global Foreign Exchange Options and Exotic Commodity Options. Paul left Merrill Lynch in 1999 and then founded Mulvaney Capital.
