Bloomberg Surveillance - History - Netflix
Point72 was founded in 2014 as the successor to SAC Capital, after the firm pleaded guilty to federal insider trading charges and paid a $1.8 billion fine. In March 2014, SAC Capital transferred the bulk of its assets to Point72 and was placed in “run-off,” or a winding down of its operations. During this transition, Point72 launched a program a firm spokesperson referred to in a Wall Street Journal article as “the first phase of its transformation and renewal.” In the wake of the government's criticism of SAC's compliance program, Point72 enacted a series of reforms to bolster internal compliance. Former federal prosecutor Vincent Tortorella was hired to fill a newly created role of chief surveillance officer, and former U.S. Attorney for Connecticut, Kevin J. O’Connor, was hired to serve as Chief Counsel. A specialized surveillance unit, composed of ex-CIA, FBI and SEC investigators, was created to emphasize the need for compliance by traders, and in 2014, the firm retained Palantir Technologies, Inc., a Central Intelligence Agency-backed software maker to provide a new tool for compliance and surveillance. During this time, Point72 adopted other software programs designed to bolster internal compliance. In August 2014, founder Steven Cohen replaced many of the management personnel who had operated SAC. Among the changes, he named a new president of Point72, Douglas D. Haynes, and a new chief operating officer, former IBM executive Timothy Shaughnessy. In 2015 the firm launched the Point72 Academy, an internship program to train new employees according to its mission and values. Point72 describes the program as an effort to build a stronger internal culture. There are satellite offices in New York City, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Singapore, London, Paris, and Palo Alto.
