Recommendations

“Christina’s reputation as the most sought after woman in her industry is well earned. Right after graduating from MIT, she co-founded Domeyard, a high-frequency trading hedge fund that was started out of her dorm room. Six years later, Christina and her co-founders are now the preeminent forces in the Hedge Fund and FinTech space.”

— Michael Elkins, MLE Law

“Christina always gets top ratings from my class even by comparison to much older, very successful guest speakers including founders from the financial services industry. They resonate to her in so many dimensions…honesty, talent and a sense that one should be giving back to society from the outset and not just after a cumulative great success.”

— Robert C. Merton, 1997 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Services

“Domeyard has captured the interest of the greater financial community for its distinct managerial philosophy, embrace of AI and its positioning as a next-generation hedge fund.”

— Gregg Schoenberg, The Financial Revolutionist
