  wordfunph: Master Andrew Kalotay..

<a member of the 1966 Canadian Olympic team who is now better-known as the inventer of Debtcost, a sophisticated computer program that factors in interest rates and other variables to help companies figure out just when to buy back their bonds.

According to Forbes, "Kalotay's success stems in part from his own experience as a chess master. Representing Canada in the 1966 World Chess Olympiad in Cuba, he recalls being awed by his competitors' dedication. Says he: 'I soon realized that these people did one thing - chess. That's how it is in business. today: pick a topic and become an expert.'">

  Breunor: He's one of the greatest financial modelers of all time; he was the first modeler to put together interest rate paths that price callable bonds accurately.

He may have been a novel prize like talent in my mind but worked in the corporate worked before starting a consulting firm.
