Guest: Peter Harrigan – Co-Founder Outcome Trading
Outcome Trading –
In today's world, risk transfer is achieved through derivatives, using highly specialized language, and opaque structures which pre-date modern information technology. Centralized financial institutions focus on high volume markets that ignore the long tail.
Hedgers simply draw a curve describing the monetary compensation they require if the price of an asset were to decline (or increase). Investors graphically describe the financial outcome they desire from price appreciation (or depreciation).
Democratizing expertise around derivatives through new tools and software. How failure by experts impacts us all Protecting oneself or one’s business in high-volatility markets Reengineering the derivatives market, starting from a blank sheet of paper
Peter is the Co-Founder of the game changing trading software, Outcome Trading.
Peter also has founded Grey Swan Digital which developed the technology behind PlastiCurv. PlastiCurv was developed to transform financial risks into opportunities - opportunities for return, diversification and social benefit. Peter’s mission was to create an intuitive and visual platform that anyone can understand, re-engineering the $600T derivatives market and making its benefits available to anyone in the world.
Peter’s long and successful career as a trader started when he developed a tradable arbitrage employed at the CME and CBOT. Peter later made markets in foreign exchange at Bank of America, currency options on the floor of the CME, and equity options on the floor of the Pacific Exchange. He also co-founded Sentient Technologies, a company developing commercial applications of a highly distributed
evolutionary learning technology. After a successful exit from Sentient, Peter turned his attention to the crypto industry in 2014, attending the first ethereum meetups, & going on to participate in the Ethereum presale.
