Brian Koppelman

co-creator of Showtime's "Billions"

Brian Koppelman is the co-creator, executive producer, and showrunner for Showtime’s series Billions, the hit drama about hedge fund Axe Capital and its ongoing battle with the US Attorney General. In Billions, Koppelman has built a complex story about power politics in the world of New York high finance.

Koppelman, along with his long-time writing, producing and directing partner David Levien, has created an influential and diverse body of work in both film and television, including Rounders and Ocean's Thirteen. While Brian's keynote will no doubt entertain, from it you will also absorb insights into the psychology of hedge fund professionals as viewed from within the culture, and by the outside world.
