After graduating with his degree in mathematics and economics, Hugh went onto join a small FX prop group set up by a group of talented ex-investment bank traders in 2009.
He left to trade his own capital, with a focus on Australian mining shares and simple option structures, where he exploited the narrow window of opportunity before the edge eroded. Hugh then moved on to trade FESX & FGBL with a focus on quantifiable edges over the traditional point and guess approach of regular prop trading outfits.
Over the coming years, he gained the attention of a number of London based intraday prop firms, firstly educating traders in how to maximise the potential of their trading software to better understand trade setup probabilities, before being hired to trade capital on private outfits behalf in 2015.
In 2017, Hugh again went to work for himself, turning his focus to longer term models. This is when Adam and he started to talk, sharing ideas on option models. Running Macrohedged was a natural progression to share their ideas to a wider audience enabling others to capitalize on them. To this day, he still runs Macrohedged alongside Adam whilst starting their own volatility fund.
Hugh and his long-term girlfriend welcomed their first child during the summer of 2019 and have since decided to make the move down to Cornwall.
Hugh makes the most of his move to the Cornish coast, managing to strike that elusive work/play balance that many traders find difficult to achieve, spending many hours on the beach with his young son and of course a few hours a week sampling the local ales in the village pub.
