Turney Duff
Author, The Buy Side
Turney is a former trader at one of the biggest hedge funds in the world, the Galleon Group, where their founder and several Galleon employees were found guilty of insider trading. Turney was an unlikely Wall Street trader as a “B” student from Ohio University but soon rose through the ranks and then fell prey to the trappings of Wall Street: money, sex, drugs, alcohol and power. Encouraged to socialize with the sell-side and siphon from his new broker friends for as much information as possible, Turney chronicles his spectacular rise and fall in his book, The Buy Side; A Wall Street Trader’s Tale of Spectacular Excess.
