Jack Schwager - Author of Market Wizards

Jack Schwager

Author of Market Wizards

Mr. Schwager is a recognized industry expert in futures and hedge funds and the author of a number of widely acclaimed financial books. He is currently engaged as a consultant in the construction and management of managed account portfolios with a particular emphasis on liquid trading strategies. He is also an advisor to an Indian quantitative trading firm, supervising a major project that will adapt their trading technology to trade a global futures portfolio.

Previously, Mr. Schwager was a partner in the Fortune Group, a London-based hedge fund advisory firm, which specialized in creating customized hedge fund portfolios for institutional clients. Mr. Schwager was one of three partners with direct responsibility for selecting managers and constructing portfolios. The Fortune Group was fully acquired by the Close Brothers Group, a U.K. merchant bank, in 2010. His previous experience includes 22 years as Director of Futures research for some of Wall Street’s leading firms and 10 years as the co-principal of a CTA.

Mr. Schwager has written extensively on the futures industry and great traders (in all financial markets). His first book, “A Complete Guide to the Futures Markets” (1984) is considered to be one of the classic reference works in the field. He later revised and expanded this original work into the three-volume series, “Schwager on Futures”, consisting of “Fundamental Analysis” (1995), “Technical Analysis” (1996), and “Managed Trading” (1996). He is also the author of “Getting Started in Technical Analysis” (1999), part of John Wiley’s popular “Getting Started” series. Mr Schwager is perhaps best known for his best-selling series of interviews with the greatest hedge fund managers of the last two decades: “Market Wizards” (1989), “The New Market Wizards” (1992), and “Stock Market Wizards” (2001).

Mr. Schwager is a frequent seminar speaker and has lectured on a range of analytical topics with particular focus on the characteristics of great traders, technical analysis, and trading system evaluation. He holds a BA in Economics from Brooklyn College (1970) and an MA in Economics from Brown University (1971).
