Managing Partner, Co-founder and Chief Investment Officer, Witter Family Office
Sherry P. Witter is the Managing Partner, Co-founder and Chief Investment Officer of the Witter Family Office and runs the investment arm and operations of the Firm. As CIO, Sherry seeds, early-invests and partners with entrepreneurial traders and portfolio managers in liquid strategies, and makes strategic investments alongside entrepreneurs, founders and management teams building transformational companies. Having spent over 20 years investing across asset classes and structures, Sherry continues to develop a unique ability for finding and backing talented managers and traders that generate outsized returns.
Sherry launched her first of several hedge funds upon graduating from the University of Pennsylvania, and as CIO of the Witter Family Office, has seeded, or early invested in, over 100 traders, managers, or strategies, and at points in time over 25 managers concurrently. Today, she continues the search for that dynamic trader who can see opportunity where others do not. When Sherry is not actively running The Witter Family Office or managing the day-to-day investment portfolios, she is meeting with undiscovered traders, evaluating new investment opportunities, or speaking at family office and investment conferences.
Sherry P. Witter resides in New York City with her sons and husband of over twenty years, Michael D. Witter. She continues to be dedicated to supporting her husband’s philanthropic endeavors.

George Simpson I’m an energetic, results driven individual with a strong passion for markets, algorithmic trading, statistical arbitrage, and large-scale risk management problems. I have often used cutting-edge technology and teamwork to tackle these problems– both theoretically and logistically complex. The majority of my career I focused on equities and equity options researching and managing a large number of successful market neutral strategies.
In the past few years I have turned my full focus, energy, and enthusiasm to crypto, blockchain technologies and decentralized finance (DeFi). I have been applying much of what I learned in my career in the TradFi proprietary trading to the space while also adapting to the many vast differences at the same time. I believe the communities in crypto are one of a kind and I’m excited for where we can take this and what we can do with blockchain.
Previously George was in quantitative trading roles at PNT Financial, Ronin Capital, and Feis Trading. He has a Bachelors in Applied Mathematics and Economics from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL and a Masters in Finance from MIT in Cambridge, MA.
About ST Dragon Crypto
Dragon Crypto employs market analysis, statistical testing, and technology to build algorithmic trading models in the digital assets space.
The goal of Dragon is to produce both significant alpha and scalability while minimizing downside risk over a short and medium frequency. Our approach is to act as investors, technologists, and quantitative traders to systematically produce very high risk-adjusted returns in the Central Exchange and Decentralized Finance space.
The Strategy team at Dragon is a small group of portfolio managers each with deep experience in TradFi algorithmic trading strategies. We focus on non-trivial mispricing opportunities on a short term, market neutral basis, typically excluding pure HFT or arbitrage. We seek strategies and ideas that will continue to be durable and competitive as more funds enter the space.
