Jane Street’s Reynolds Turns to Art With Trading Fortune

Tim Reynolds, who made his fortune transforming mathematicians into traders at Jane Street Capital LLC, has a new obsession: teaching poor students to master photorealistic painting.

Reynolds stepped aside in September from the multibillion-dollar-a-day arbitrage operation he co-founded in 2000. He’s already donated more than $10 million to endow free art schools in Anguilla, the Dominican Republic, Pennsylvania, Sri Lanka and Thailand, and he’s developing luxurious hotels nearby to bring in potential collectors.
