Here is profile of another hedgie Daniel Loeb.

Loeb & griffin have same credentials,
In 1997 loeb had about 13 years wall street experience, still struggling to gather assets for his start-up hedge fund.Where griffin was managing 1b$ in '97.

Loeb is a discretionary trader where griffin made his fortune in computer driven COnv Arb .

So conclusion we can make is with computer driven strategies,one can strike in this industry in young age .Noone really trusts young discretionary traders!

there are basically 5 computer driven trading strategies in my opinion :

1 Fixed income arb(LTCM )
2 COnv ARb(Citadel,OChziff)
3 Stat Arb(DE Shaw )
4 CTA (REn tec,AHL,Winton)
5 high freq trading (Getco,Tradebot)

Which One Do you like?

I like 2,3&4.
