15 Years Of Making Our Vision A Reality

The Team

We love working with smart people who recognise that none of us is as smart as all of us. Our team is made up of highly talented professionals specialising in everything from trading and technology to quantitative research and business operations. In the same way that we continuously work to diversify ourselves in trading, we also believe the diversity of our team is pivotal to our success.

Our Values

We talk to each other. We see beyond what is immediately possible. We achieve more together than we could ever do on our own. We invest in our people. We make it happen. We have an attitude of gratitude.

Why Epoch

We are a trading firm with a difference; the thing that sets us apart is how we work as a team because we know our real difference is how we get things done together.

Making Our Vision
A Reality

We’re a proprietary trading firm formed in Sydney in 2007 with a vision of turning our discretionary trading decisions into systematic trades.

Over the past 15 years we’ve formed a world class team of developers, quants and operational staff spread across Sydney, New York & London in the relentless pursuit of our goals. Our success has been built on identifying, quantifying and capturing opportunities that are hard to predict but offer attractive risk-reward.


Michael Humphreys

Founder & CEO

My primary responsibility here at Epoch, is to guide and support our team in solving the challenges presented today, in a manner that will develop our ability to solve even greater challenges tomorrow. I’m privileged to be able to work with a collection of intelligent and independent minds, in an environment where open and honest communication, is more important than position, which means I have to be on my game everyday, and am constantly learning from our innovative team. The magic moments happen for me at Epoch when I can help this diverse collection of talented people, come together to develop a solution or strategy that none of us could have come to on our own. Before I found trading, sport was my life, and so I am proud that Epoch’s story has been based on some of the core principles of sporting success; ambition, attention to detail, teamwork and persistence.

Darren Mast

Chief Operating Officer

My role at Epoch is to assist in driving the creation and execution of the firm’s global strategy. This includes development and implementation of firm, business and functional plans, creating and executing funding strategies aligned to the firm’s objectives and creating and running accountability processes to measure and manage effective day-to-day execution.

My main objective is to align what we do and work toward achieving our collective vision.

Roslyn Russell

Head of People & Culture

Epoch is a place where talented people from around the world come to achieve exceptional things. As Head of People and Culture it’s my responsibility to develop and drive initiatives that ensure our people can reach their potential and beyond. I am passionate about creating an environment where people can grow, develop and perform – and have some fun along the way! Working closely with the team I focus on how we work together to achieve success, implementing initiatives that are relevant, useful and drive performance. I’m proud to be a part of a firm that truly values the diversity and creativity that every individual brings. This is what makes us unique, and is the foundation for our ongoing success.

Alex Sadowski

I also manage our US operation based out of New York, which includes our U.S. investment adviser that operates Epoch’s hedge fund business.

Current Opportunities
