    Hedge fund and prop shops are two different things. Unlikely you’ll find them in Seattle.

      Agree. But they are a lot different from institutional mutual fund.

    Haven't searched but when I was looking some months ago I didn't come across any such places in Seattle. There was 1fintech startup though. There's a few in CA though, small but exclusive. Austin has quite a few.
