Hilton grew up in Perth and graduated from UWA in 1991 with a degree in Accounting and Finance.
Firm in his belief that he would become a trader Hilton moved to London to follow his passion. He landed his first job in the stock market at Albert Sharp in Birmingham - 100 miles outside the city.
Nine months later Hilton was offered a role at Goldman Sachs in London. He followed this with a stint on the LIFFE exchange and in 1996 Hilton launched his own stock broking business called Kyte Securities which then became Eden Group.
In 2002 Hilton launched a hedge fund called Marble Bar Asset Management (MBAM).
MBAM became one of London’s most successful hedge funds peaking in 2008 with an AUM of $5BM. The success of the fund was due to the firm’s culture – a tireless pursuit of learning, iterating, and repeatable processes combined with proprietary technology Hilton created which helped support idea generation and all the stages in the investment process.
Hilton sold Marble Bar to Swiss bank EFG in 2008.
In 2013 Hilton reacquired Marble Bar and in the same year created Firefly Capital. Firefly Capital identifies and backs talented people with entrepreneurial vision and gives them the financial, creative and strategic support they need to build profitable businesses. It is a place of excellence, a place where people can develop and where businesses can grow.
Hilton created Red Deer in 2014 with the goal of solving the primary problems he had encountered as an asset manager through an E2E software solution that focuses on effective management of information flow.
In 2015 Hilton completed an Executive Masters in Consulting and Coaching for Change at INSEAD.
His primary objective today is to use technology to harness and develop trading talent; he has established a multi-manager fund whose goal is demonstrate that over time, traders can be nurtured and developed, just as in many other professions.
Hilton believes in giving back and he started the Rosemarie Nathanson Charitable Trust to support charities that focus on helping young people gain critical life skills through non-formal education and training. Amongst others, the RNCT supports the Israel Youth Awards which is part of the Duke of Edinburgh International Award Programme.
