Tudor’s Jones Apologizes for Remarks on Female Traders

Paul Tudor Jones, the billionaire investor who sought yesterday to clarify remarks that drew protests, apologized for saying that women can’t compete with men as macro traders after having children.

“Much of my adult life has been spent fighting for equal opportunity, and the idea that I would support limiting opportunity for any segment of society, particularly women, is antithetical to who I am and what I have done,” Jones, founder and president of Tudor Investment Corp., a $13 billion hedge-fund firm in Greenwich, Connecticut, said in a statement today. “My remarks offended, and I am sorry.”
