About this deal

The Montpelier city finance department has been relocated back to City Hall and the police station from its temporary home in the Montpelier Senior Activity Center at 58 Barre Street following the July flood, which damaged the lower offices of City Hall, according to the city manager’s report of Sept. These results suggest that market liquidity conditions were resilient in the fixed income ETF market throughout the crisis. Instead, Jane Street almost resembles an anarchist commune, informally led by a group of 30 or 40 senior executives. They were still in their infancy when Jane Street was founded, but similarities to ADRs meant that moving early into ETFs represented only a modest leap.

We know we are an important part of the efficiency of many of these markets, and that’s something that we feel a huge responsibility for and take very seriously,” Mr Berger says.Some analysts and investors have long fretted what would happen if an accident were to befall one of the bigger players. Crack taught at the university level for over 20 years including four years as a front line teaching assistant for MBA students at MIT. Insurers such as Allstate, State Farm and Farmers Insurance are withdrawing from disaster-prone areas. Stephen joined the Journal from British investment magazine Investors Chronicle, where he oversaw the companies coverage and wrote a column.

Mr Granieri is the only remaining founder still at the company, but there is no chief executive, hierarchy or even a clear management committee. We think of ourselves as mainly built for crises,” says Rob Granieri, one of the company’s founders. A smattering of titles have been reluctantly adopted in recent years, but internally they are little used and people rotate around the firm to keep things fresh. Tim Reynolds, Michael Jenkins, Mr Granieri and Mr Gerstein were soon joined by a medley of traders and coders, such as Yaron Minsky, who convinced the firm to adopt OCaml as its sole programming language. Co-op operations will continue as usual in Plainfield Village until members can iron out the details.It was a really acute period of time when it was very difficult to trade bonds, even Treasuries,” says Samara Cohen, co-head of BlackRock’s iShares markets and investments unit. Jane Street executives are wary of discussing any financial details and are keener to highlight the implicit endorsement of the Fed: in September the central bank added Jane Street to its list of companies through which it would implement its corporate bond purchases, alongside the likes of JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley and Citi. City officials are still trying to figure out the best way to open up more of City Hall, which includes flood proofing and flood/damage mitigation. One way for American banks to offset the pressure coming from rising deposit costs would be to boost business: More loans, even if earning less individually, could still lead to overall revenue growth.

Nonetheless, the events of 2020 highlight just how big and influential the growing bond ETF universe is, and how vitally important firms like Jane Street are to their functioning.

For a firm like Jane Street — which estimates that it accounts for almost a third of all primary and secondary trading in US bond ETFs — it was nirvana. Nonetheless, a smattering of studies in the wake of the tumult have guardedly concluded that bond ETFs proved resilient and may even have helped investors manage the coronavirus shock. In practice, many bond ETFs traded almost like traditional closed-end funds, the Bank of Canada concluded in a postmortem published in December.There is also a recently revised section on interview technique based on feedback from interviewers worldwide. Stephen Wilmot is an editor of The Wall Street Journal's Heard on the Street column, based in London.
