Paul Tudor Jones

*inducted in 2005

Paul Tudor Jones is the president and founder of Tudor Investment Corp., one of the best known and most successful macro hedge funds. Jones got his start in the trading business on the floor of the former New York Cotton Exchange and has long favored the futures markets for his trading strategies. He was one of the first to realize the problems associated with size and to give money back to investors. One measure of his influence on the industry is that over the years, a large number of talented traders have cut their teeth at Tudor before striking out on their own. Jones was a director on the FIA board for many years, and has contributed an impressive amount of his time and energy to charity, most notably through his financial and personal support for the Robin Hood Foundation, an organization dedicated to fighting poverty in New York City.
