Learn More About Christina Qi
What does it take to make a hedge fund a runaway success? Few people can answer that question as knowledgeably as Christina Qi, who launched Domeyard, LP, from her college dorm in 2012 with $1,000 of seed money. The company now trades up to a billion dollars per day, relying on Qi’s expertise in financial literacy, artificial intelligence (AI) and leadership.
Qi (“Chee”), who is the CEO of Databento, advises organizations on how to make wise investment decisions and create forward-looking companies that thrive in the 21st century. A key principle for Qi is that individual investors and companies must stay in step with the ever-evolving digital landscape—that’s the only way to outpace the competition.
Speaking from experience, Qi shows companies how to leverage machine learning when dealing with skyrocketing amounts of data, so they can create agile, adaptive cultures and systems.
“From trading up to $7.1 billion per day to making the cover of Forbes, and earning more money in an hour than my parents make in a year, I’ve learned a thing or two about how hedge funds and startups can grow and thrive in this hyper-competitive, modern world,” says Qi.
Domeyard’s extensive research focuses on identifying advanced automation tools that help companies respond to today’s ever-changing business landscape. An authority on data availability and storage, computer speed and machine learning techniques, Qi is penning her first book, “The Finance Snake: A Memoir About My Billion Dollar Hedge Fund” (2021), an engaging, sure-handed guide to smart investing.
“Countless people have told me that my story needs to be published right now,” says Qi. “People need to know the truth about starting a hedge fund today, the controversial practice of high-frequency trading—including the FBI interrogations and lawsuits that I’ve been through—as well as life at one of the most elite colleges in the world and the story of my fund, Domeyard.”
Qi contributes to the World Economic Forum’s research on AI in finance. Since 2014, she has lectured at MIT, including for Nobel Laureate Robert Merton’s “Retirement Finance” course. Qi presents the case study for Domeyard at Harvard Business School and other universities. She has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times, Bloomberg, CNN and NBC. Qi holds a Bachelor of Science degree in management science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is a devoted volunteer for nonprofit organizations such as Invest in Girls, the Boston Ballet, Women in Finance and the Women’s Health Forum.
