Michael Platt

Michael Platt was born on March 23, 1984 in Geneva, Switzerland, United Kingdom, is Founder, BlueCrest Capital Management. Highly leveraged bets on interest rates paid off for Platt in 2016 as his supersized family office turned in a 50% return net of costs. Platt co-founded BlueCrest Capital Management in late 2000 after nearly a decade at JP Morgan. Platt grew BlueCrest into one of the world's largest hedge fund managers with more than $35 billion in assets at its peak, offering low-volatility funds marked by rapid trading across a wide variety of markets. A push into equities and poor results led to investor exits and he handed outside investors their money back in 2015, joining the likes of George Soros and Steve Cohen in running a family office that resembles a big hedge fund.

Michael then signed for the Rochdale Hornets. His impressive début season was somewhat blighted by a broken jaw, although he did go on to win the National League's Young Player of the Year award in 2004.


Michael then joined the Castleford Tigers, and helped the Tigers gain promotion in 2005. Despite the subsequent Super League season proving to be difficult in a squad which lacked quality, Platt still managed to score 7 tries. However, after a heartbreaking 29–17 defeat against Wakefield in the final game of the season, Castleford were relegated.


Platt joined the Bradford Bulls in 2007 after a dispute between Platt and Castleford over his availability. His first season started well and he topped the try-scorers league for a number of weeks at the start of the season. He extended his contract in 2011 for a further 2 years, meaning he will stay with the Bulls until at least 2013.


He was named in the Ireland training squad for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup, and the Ireland squad for the 2008 Rugby League World Cup.


In October 2014, Platt played in the European Cup competition.
