Instructor Biography

Igor Neunyvakin, Financial Markets Trading Consultant

I started my career as a financial analyst and trader in the Adekta company and even during my years in a university I started to manage a million-dollar fund. In a while, I switched to the sphere of technologies and became a consultant on financial markets in the Cognitive Finance Technologies company, which was developing matching systems for stock exchanges as well as trading terminals. Working hand-in-hand with many talented programmers and engineers, I was able to learn High Frequency Trading "from the inside" and understand it not only as a trader, but also as a technical expert.
