Steve Eisman, Inspiration for Steve Carell's Character in "The Big Short," to Keynote Domopalooza
Eisman Will Discuss How Analyzing Data Uncovered Significant Truths to Guide Oscar-Worthy Financial Decisions
SILICON SLOPES, Utah – March 2, 2016 – Today Domo announced that financial manager Steve Eisman, the inspiration for Mark Baum, Steve Carell’s character in the Oscar-winning film “The Big Short,” will give a keynote speech at Domopalooza on how he analyzed data to uncover significant truths about the 2008 housing crisis and was able to reap substantial benefits. The film won at this year’s Academy Awards for Best Adapted Screenplay and was up for five Oscars in total including Best Picture.
Eisman managed hedge funds for FrontPoint Partners, where he bet against subprime mortgages (as depicted in the film, based on the Michael Lewis novel of the same name). He now works as managing director for the Eisman Group within the Neuberger Berman Group.
