A 20-year industry veteran, Thomas Rollinger honed
his skills under quantitative hedge fund legend,
Edward O. Thorp (Market Wizards author Jack Schwager recently called Dr. Thorp the greatest of all time). The strategy Rollinger co-developed & co-managed with
Edward Thorp was successful enough to gain mention in two best-selling books (The Quants and Hedge Fund Market Wizards). Considered a thought leader in the futures industry, Mr. Rollinger published the highly acclaimed 37-page white paper Revisiting Kat’s Managed Futures & Hedge Funds in 2012 and co-authored both Sortino Ratio: A Better Measure of Risk and A Comparison of CTA Indexes in 2013. Previously he was a consultant to two top CTAs and he inspired the creation of an industry-leading trading system design software package. Earlier in his career, Mr. Rollinger founded and operated a systematic futures investment fund and worked for original “Turtle” Tom Shanks of Hawksbill Capital Management. After graduating college in Michigan, Mr. Rollinger became a U.S. Marine Corps Officer. He served
as a 1st Lieutenant in command of a 42-man infantry platoon and was selected to be promoted to the rank of Captain before resigning his commission. He holds a finance degree with a minor in economics and is a Certified Hedge Fund Professional (CHP) Level 1 Charter Holder.
Mr. Hoffman, a 20-year managed futures industry veteran, graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Brigham Young University in April 1987. During the 1990s, Mr. Hoffman began applying his engineering domain expertise in the areas of statistics, mathematics, and model development to the financial markets. In April 2003, after several years of successful proprietary trading, Mr. Hoffman founded Red Rock Capital Management, Inc., a quantitative Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) and Commodity Pool Operator (CPO). Early in his trading career, Mr. Hoffman participated in a CTA Star Search Challenge and earned a $1 million allocation as a result of his top performance. Since then, Red Rock Capital’s outstanding performance has earned the firm multiple awards from BarclayHedge. Mr. Hoffman, active in the research areas of risk and investment performance measurement as well as trading model development, deploys his technical skills and expertise in developing and analyzing sophisticated algorithmic execution models that minimize transaction costs for Red Rock Capital’s quantitative strategies. His publications include Sortino: A 'Sharper' Ratio and A Comparison of CTA Indexes, both of which he co-authored with Mr. Rollinger.
