Warrington Asset Management LLC
When founder of Warrington Asset Management, Scott Kimple, started trading options more than 20 years ago, most options managers were pure premium sellers. “Back then before tech homogenized a lot of trading and got everyone on the same valuation models, you did have some pretty extreme options mispricings,” Kimple says...“People say to us, ‘Your returns aren’t what they [used to be],’ We say that is because we are good risk managers. You have options traders that have made strong returns over the last few years because they have been taking excess risk.
For six years, the Pinnacle Awards have recognized excellence in trading in the managed futures space. Warrington has brought home the coveted award this year. Headed by founder and principal trader Scott Kimple, Warrington Asset Management's programs utilize a fundamental, discretionary trading strategy using options on the S&P 500 index. The firm, founded by Kimple in 1997, has used the same underlying methodology for all programs since its launch.
