Two Sigma believes the scientific method is the best way to approach investing - ideas backed up with information and improved by iteration.  We’re not your typical investment manager.  We follow principles of technology and innovation as much as principles of investment management.  Fields like machine learning and distributed computing guide us.  Since 2001, we’ve searched for ways that these kinds of technologies can make us better at what we do.  We never stop researching and developing, and in the process, we work to help real people.  Through our investors, we support the retirements of millions around the world, and help fund breakthrough research, education and a wide range of charities and foundations.

The mission of the Business Innovation & Growth team is to apply creativity, rigor and collaboration to help plan and execute the business growth of Two Sigma.  Our work is a blend of strategy, business development and execution with a key focus on defining what the future looks like and how Two Sigma can play a part in defining and improving it.  Our mandate is to shape the future of finance and technology – as a proven pioneer and leader in both spaces.
