Danny Moses

Founder, Moses Ventures, Former Hedge Fund Manager featured in “The Big Short”


There are a lot of reasons people get interested in the stock market. But for Danny Moses, it has to be the most unusual one. It started with a dog his dad promised him if a certain stock hit $10. He began getting the newspaper every day and scanned the business section to check the stock price. It fired him up and began a passion that still is incredibly strong today. Read More >

It also led to one of the greatest trades in Wall Street history and Danny being featured as a protagonist in two bestselling Michael Lewis books and an award-winning movie.

Danny began his career on Wall Street in 1991 and he has viewed the markets from many different perspectives: Municipal Bond Analyst, Institutional Equities Broker/Trader and, eventually, a Hedge Fund Manager. During his career, Danny has built a reputation of integrity, inquisitiveness and skepticism that has aided him.

Danny gained fame as one of the traders profiled in Lewis’ book, The Big Short, and later the film. Only months after the release of the movie, the infamous "Flash Crash" occurred on Wall Street and Danny once again found himself a character in another Lewis book, Flash Boys. Today, Danny is both an investor and advisor to several private companies and co-hosts the podcast On the Tape with CNBC Fast Money contributors Dan Nathan and Guy Adami. Danny received both his BBA and MBA from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Read Less ^

There will always be jobs for talented and motivated individuals, he says.

From the near collapse of the global financial system leading to the biggest recession since the Great Depression to a booming stock market to the impact of COVID on financial markets and the more recent bank collapses, Danny Moses has seen it all—and successfully weathered many storms. One of the main reasons is that Danny understands how Wall Street “works” both on the equity and fixed income desks. His time as both an Institutional Broker and Hedge Fund Manager has given him a perspective from both sides of the fence. In addition, he knows the products that Wall Street creates and sells, as well as the power Wall Street holds over Washington, D.C. in helping create policy and oversight that really ends up in self-policing. An entrepreneur at heart, Danny also gets what it takes for companies to build a culture of honesty, inquisitiveness and skepticism that helps them navigate as they grow. Read More >
