BlueCrest Adds Morgan Stanley’s Kajiya

Jun 7 2010 | 2:01pm ET

For the second time in two months, a Morgan Stanley executive is leaving the investment bank for hedge fund BlueCrest Capital Management.

Daniel Kajiya was named an emerging markets portfolio manager at London-based BlueCrest.

At Morgan Stanley, Kajiya worked in Brazil as vice president for market making in U.S. dollar-Brazilian real currency trading and proprietary trading. At BlueCrest, he’ll be based in Lodnon.

Kajiya’s departure from Morgan Stanley to BlueCrest follows that of Marcin Wiszniewski, who joined the hedge fund last month. Wiszniewski was head of European foreign exchange and emerging markets at Morgan Stanley, and now heads BlueCrest’s emerging markets portfolio.
