Aric Whitewood
Founding Partner, WilmotML


Aric Whitewood is cofounder of WilmotML, a machine learning and macroeconomics-focused investment and advisory firm. He is also an honorary senior lecturer in the Computer Science Department of University College London (UCL), for which he runs several research programs with UCL students on machine learning topics. Aric focuses on the combination of neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and investing, with a particular emphasis on developing investment systems that are transparent (enabling trust in investment decisions) and that operate on longer timescales than has historically been the case with algorithmic systems (typically months). Previously, he was head of data science at Credit Suisse Zurich, where he ran AI projects across a number of businesses and geographic locations and served as the bank’s subject-matter expert in machine learning, regularly presenting to both the bank’s management and its major clients. He holds a PhD in electronic engineering from UCL.
