Borish worked at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York from 1982–85, monitoring foreign exchanges and futures and options.[4][5][8] He was then founding partner and second-in-command at Tudor Investment Corporation, which he joined in 1985 and left in December 1994.[2][3][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][excessive citations] Paul Tudor Jones, the trader and founder of Tudor Investment Corporation for whom Borish was the right-hand man, says he anticipated the crash in 1987 because Borish had mapped the 1987 market against the market preceding the 1929 crash, and noted the similarity between the two markets.[1][9][12][15]

Subsequently, from October 2004 and until 2006, Borish was Chairman of OneChicago, LLC, an all-electronic exchange, and CEO of Twinfields Capital Management, a global macro hedge fund focused on fixed income.[4][5][8][16][17][18][19][excessive citations] He is also former Chairman of the Foundation for the Study of Cycles.[16]

Borish is a co-author of Introduction to Drift Theory (1986), along with Paul D. Knudsvig and Edward L. Rombach.[23] He appeared in the PBS documentary Trader (1987).[24][25][26]

Borish has, since 1991, served as Trustee of the Institute for Financial Markets, a not-for-profit, educational institute that seeks to foster the development of standards and best practices initiatives in the financial services industry.[4] He was Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Institute from March 1992 to March 1998, and again from March 2004 to March 2014.[4][5][27]
