About Me

Hi. I’m Lawrence Zhou. Welcome to my personal website for fun and profit. I’m one of the founders of RentHop.com, an apartment search engine. We focus on rentals in New York, Boston, Chicago, and other major metro-areas.

I enjoy coffee, coding, and DotA. I also enjoy investing (ahem… gambling) in my personal account. I don’t believe I can generate market alpha, though, so my goal is to properly capture beta and the other well-known risk premiums (volatility, liquidity, etc.).

I plan to be brutally honest about my thoughts, positioning, and returns (so that I’m embarrassed accordingly for the terrible ideas I’ll likely have).  I would also like to have discussions about my thoughts (especially if I’m wrong)… so let me know!
