James Caird Loses Two More Traders

May 25 2010 | 1:30pm ET

Traders continue to flee James Caird Asset Management apace.

Two more, Askin Aziz and Benjamin Bouillou, left the London-based hedge fund last week, Financial News reports. Their departures follow that of treasurer Matthew Coleman, who is to join Warwick Capital Partners, European credit chief Iftikhar Ali, who left for Millennium Management, and credit trader Gopi Karunakaran, who will join Tricadia Capital this summer.

Aziz was head of high-yield at James Caird and Bouillou was an equity trader.

It is unclear why Aziz and Bouillou left the firm. Ali’s departure, after just nine months at the firm, was prompted by his unhappiness about James Caird’s compensation policy.
