Hedge-Funder Cliff Asness Admits He Has a Little Problem With Anger


Cliff Asness, the founder-manager of AQR Capital Management and the scribe behind one of the best eff-you letters of the financial crisis, is as open about his personal demons as he is about his feelings toward the Obama administration. For instance, per today’s Journal: When AQR was hemorrhaging money at the start of the subprime debacle, “Mr. Asness frequently erupted in his office, smashing computer screens in anger, according to people familiar with the matter. Mr. Asness confirmed the account.” And they say there are no honest people on Wall Street. [WSJ]
