1. The big technological leap of the millennium.
Come for the sun, stay for the technology.
Wall Street firms that have moved to Florida are founding their startups, and a major hedge fund is already laying the groundwork for what will become a pipeline for tech talent.
Insider's Bianca Chan got the first look at Millennium Management's new engineering training program for the Miami office.
The program, led by former Goldman CEO Olga Naumovich, lasts 12 to 18 months and allows young engineers to try out for various positions at the $58 billion hedge fund. The launch of the program comes as the war for tech talent continues to rage across the region.
Bianca spoke with Naumovich about the program, the types of technologists Millennium is looking for, and the Miami company's broader tech ambitions.
Such training programs. rival Citadel runs a program for engineers with similar experience levels, giving hedge funds an interesting edge in finding technical talent.
Interest in learning finance, rather than knowledge in the field, tends to be the priority. Participants can usually change groups to get a feel for the organization and what they like. And perhaps most importantly, part of the program focuses on working with non-technical people.
The programs address the most pressing complaints often raised by technical staff at large banks. (More on that here.)
So, as multi-purpose hedge funds like Millennium become the banks of the new age, it's interesting to see how they try to avoid making the same mistakes as their predecessors.
