Jagjit Manhas graduated in 2005 with a first class (Honours) BSc degree in Software Engineering. His final dissertation was centred on Artificial Intelligence.
Jagjit began his career as a software engineer and worked for multi-national companies, including Sony Ericsson, Sony and EDS (eventually acquired by Hewlett Packard). Jagjit had always maintained a keen interest in financial markets and in 2008 decided to switch across to the financial sector, joining Oak Capital Management. Having built an automated market making model he transitioned into a quantitative trader role, developing, testing and executing alpha generating quantitative strategies in the energy futures space. Throughout this time he was constantly evolving his models and creating new trade opportunities using artificial intelligence methods and incorporating genetic programming. In the depths of the financial crisis, Oak Capital closed in 2011. Jagjit retained complete ownership of all aspects of the models he developed, and having briefly joined a couple of smaller brokerage houses, Jagjit decided to open his models to external investors.
Jagjit joined Jaguar Investments in 2015.
