Who is Dr Stephen D. Friel?
Steve founded Red Beard Consulting after leaving the Hong Kong hedge fund industry in 2016. His experiences across Asian capital markets pointed toward a new theory of price discovery. Steve set out to quantify how liquidity and trading outcomes in international capital markets are driven by variations in locally available technology and market design.
Steve’s PhD was funded by NASDAQ and his doctoral thesis, A Market Microstructure Theory of Relativity: Towards a Theory of Everything for Financial Markets, demonstrated the feasibility of using cloud computing to generate real-time, market efficiency metrics and accurate price predictions in fragmented market environments.
Since its publication, Steve has gone on to consult for numerous listed and unlisted organisations in sectors including capital markets, credit markets, electronic trading, blockchain, tech and property.
His work has led to the development of bold new technologies and go-to-market strategies that have generated large investment return and new, ongoing revenue streams.
