Fresh out of college, Boyle began his career at the Bank of America. To gain an edge in the market, he started following a statistical approach. He jumped ship in 2001 when he got hired as a financial derivatives trader at Victor Niederhoffer, a former associate of billionaire investor George Soros.
During his career he also worked as a Portfolio Manager at firms such as Millennium Management, LLC, Nomura Securities, and Royal Bank of Scotland.
