Now Data Scientists And Technologists Are Trapped By Hedge Funds' Horrible Non-compete Agreements | Efinancialcareers
It's not just portfolio managers and analysts who are locked-in for months and years when they leave. : As we reported last month, Point72 has parted company with David Loazia, its former chief data scientist. Loazia left the hedge fund at some point in the past few months. Don't expect him to turn up anywhere else anytime soon though - he's said to have a massive 18 month non-compete agreement which prevents him from working for a rival firm. Loazia will be tending his garden well into 2019 and maybe into 2020.
