New York-based Capstone Holdings Group has hired hedge fund replication expert Heiko Ebens to lead its research team.
Ebens was most recently at Merrill Lynch, where he spent the past seven years. At Merrill, he was a managing director and head of global equities derivatives research, leading the effort to build a structured-product platform that raised more than $13 billion.
