Malik Corbett is a finance industry veteran. As a native New Yorker, growing up in streets of the Bronx taught him resilience and hustle which he displayed during his 15+ years in fintech. Before co-founding Delta Point Technologies, S.A. with Tynan Overstreet, Malik began his career in fintech working with top Wall Street firms such as JP Morgan Chase and Bloomberg LP.
Malik worked for a data expense management software firm named MDSL, where he oversaw the client relations for the firm’s North American market data business. Seeing an emerging opportunity in the FinTech alternative data space, Malik joined iSentium as the Director of Sales were he lead the company’s sales effort.
In his spare time Malik likes to workout and read books. Malik also considers himself a hip hop historian and is the Corbett Family Spades Champion.
Tynan Overstreet a.k.a. Mktstk
Tynan Overstreet began his trading career at the precocious age of 16, funding his first account with a tuition refund check he levered to the hilt at a now forgotten relic of the dot com past. From these humble beginnings he rose to be the head of an institutional trading desk in Chicago, making markets in interest rate derivatives.
Almost two decades and trillions of dollars in trading volume since his first trade as a teenager, Tynan’s career has echoed the evolution of the financial markets themselves, evolving from a largely manual game into one dominated by automated trading. He distills his years of experience into byte-sized blocks of trading wisdom here on Mining Bytes. In his spare time Tynan likes to relax, listen to music, and fantasize about having more spare time.
