Izzy Englander, the founder of Millenium Management, was overheard talking about “quants,” computer program-minded traders and engineers, recently.According to the Wall Street Journal, Englander said that because more than 25% of his firm’s activity is quantitative arbitrage, many of his pros aren’t comfortable working with colleagues.

“Try telling a quant to be collegial,” he said. “He might give you his birth date and a mug-shot picture.”
