Former proprietary trader and hedge fund manager Boris Pilichowski has launched a new firm designed to coach traders like athletes.

Pilichowski told Financial News that London-based Axis Minds, which consults and coaches traders and portfolio managers on organization and strategy, will “provide a similar service as the one of a coach of a sports team,” where the firm will motivate, challenge, film the matches and review the process.

According to the article, Pilichowski also said that his firm’s launch was prompted by the increased competition in the hedge fund industry where firms can no longer solely rely on star managers but also by employing behavioral analysis.

Pilichowski previously worked at Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and Deutsche Bank as a proprietary trader before launching hedge fund firm Apson in 2011.
