On February 25, 2009, it was announced that Raghunathan and his associates would be leaving Deutsche Bank to set up the independent quant trading hedge fund.[1] It was announced in late July 2013 that the main fund of Roc Capital Management would be liquidated after losses.

Born and raised in India, Raghunathan attended the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras (IIT Madras), as a National Science Talent Search scholar. After receiving his engineering degree in 1984, he moved to the United States and obtained a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of California, Berkeley in 1988. For the next three years, Raghunathan was Assistant Professor at the Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences of New York University and the University of California, Davis, where he accomplished fundamental research on computing. During this time, Raghunathan also was a consultant for a number of corporations, including IBM, Hewlett Packard, and Xerox. He was elected as a Fellow of the Institute for Combinatorics in 1991. Raghunathan was one of four honorees for the 2007 Spirit of Asian American Gala [3], which served to recognize each individual's direct, substantive contribution to society. This event was hosted on May 8, 2007 by the Asian American Federation of New York, a nonprofit leadership organization.[3]
