[X Thread] How Mathematician Jim Simons generated 3x returns than Warren Buffet for 30 years

Objective -- I wrote this detailed X thread to showcase my expertise in writing long-form informational content.

Behind-the-scenes research -- I devoted a full day to research to back up my facts. 

1/ Watching tens of YouTube videos helped me know the story of Simons quickly and effectively.

2/ I went down the rabbit hole and read other threads written on Jim Simons. Although, there were not plenty of them... I managed to find a really good one to derive inspiration from.

3/The Majority of the research time I spent reading articles about him and his firm. It updated me on stories about him that are missing in surface-level research.

[All the research used is mentioned at the end of the thread]

Challenges faced --

1/ The limit of only 280 characters per tweet examined my objectivity and the skill to maintain brevity.

2/ Though it is a long-form content piece, I had to keep in mind to not write in such a way as to bore the reader.

Time spent and tools used --

1/ It took me around 1.5 days to complete this thread. 25% of the time was used in collecting research links while the rest of the time was used in writing the thread.

2/ Tools used: Google, Typefully, X.


I would like to thank Yasin who helped me by designing this thumbnail used in the project.
