John W. Henry

The performance data of Bill Dunn and John W. Henry show them to be trend followers cut from similar cloth. They are both astonishingly successful self-made men who started without formal association to Wall Street. They developed trading systems in the 1970s that have made them millions of dollars again and again. Their correlated performance data shows that they both trade for absolute returns and often trade in the same trends at the same time. Today, John W. Henry manages over two billion dollars in client assets.

Another big winner was John W. Henry & Co.’s dollar fund, which returned 50% through the end of August, mostly by betting the dollar would weaken against the euro and the yen. “We really caught the trend from April through July when the dollar kept losing ground against other currencies,” says Mark Rzepczynski, chief investment officer at Henry in Boca Raton, Fla. Both Rzepczynski and Dunn hope to profit from movements in global currencies and stock indexes as uncertainty continues over Iraq.[28]
