Jim Simons is one of the gurus we track for Premium Members. He is not a value investor, but what he does attracts a lot of attention from Wall Street. Above all, the math genius who explores the market inefficiencies through complex models, has produced an average annual return over 38 percent since 1989 from his flagship fund at Renaissance Technologies. He runs complex strategies and trades with large number of stocks. Simons shuns the limelight and rarely gives interviews, citing Benjamin the Donkey in Animal Farm for explanation: "God gave me a tail to keep off the flies. But I'd rather have had no tail and no flies."
