To be the industry's premier asset management firm through delivering superior risk-adjusted returns, adhering to the highest ethical standards and offering the greatest opportunities to the industry's brightest talent.
Shortly after Point72 began business, Steve Cohen and then president Doug Haynes appealed to the Firm to define what it stood for – and to commit our principles to writing.
A small and diverse group of people drawn from across the Firm began the discussion, but quickly enlisted more colleagues and solicited their views.
Within three months, more than 40 percent of the Firm had worked together to enunciate our principles and values.
These efforts culminated in a signing ceremony, in which everyone publicly signed his or her name to the Point72 Mission and Values.
Today, signed copies of our Mission and Values hang in our offices around the globe. No matter where Point72 employees find themselves, the Mission and Values travel with them.
The words in our Mission and Values are literally words for us to live by. If we do so, we will not only be a great Firm, but set the standard for the rest of the industry.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
