In 2006 Alexey received a Bachelor in Science degree. While still in school, the young Alexey started to develop an interest in probability theory, and during his studies at the Economics faculty Kirienko tried to look at the financial part specifically from the perspective of game theory, conditional probabilities and statistics.
Being in his second or third year, the young man has already started to make his first investments, namely securities trading. And despite his initial desire to go to work at a major oil and gas company, Alexey decides to devote himself entirely to investment and trading. In his fifth year, Alexey Kirienko and some other buddies were involved in statistical arbitrage. In 2005-2006 this helped the young students earn their first big money.
Alexey partnered with Anatoliy Knyazev . In 2010 Alexey's team developed trading software. At first they were doing it for themselves, but as their work became more and more interesting to other market participants, Alexey began thinking about the business model and how to monetize it in an optimal way. That's when the idea of a brokerage business came up.
In 2009 Alexey and his partners decided to close the Fund and focus on the development of a trading platform for exchanges.
