Moore Capital Hires Brevan Howard Co-Founder

Jan 5 2010 | 12:59pm ET

Brevan Howard Capital Management co-founder Jean-Philippe Blochet has joined Moore Capital Management, the latest high-profile hire by the London-based $14 billion hedge fund.

Blochet—whose name gave Brevan Howard its ‘B’—will join Moore later this month. He will serve as a senior portfolio manager, using the macro strategy that he employed to such great effect at Brevan Howard, Europe’s largest hedge fund firm.

Blochet left Brevan in November after returning from his 2008 sabbatical.

Moore’s hire of Blochet follows its coup in late 2008, nabbing GLG Partner’s former star trader, Greg Coffey, after Coffey left that firm with plans of starting his own hedge fund.
