Brevan Hires Former James Caird Equities Trader

Jul 14 2010 | 12:42pm ET

Brevan Howard Asset Management, which has said it wishes to boost its equities trading capabilities, has added a former James Caird Asset Management trader.

Benjamin Boulliou joined Europe’s largest hedge fund manager last week, Financial News reports. He was named a junior equities trader at the London-based hedge fund.

Boulliou was part of a small exodus of traders from London-based James Caird earlier this year. In May, he and four others—head of high-yield Askin Aziz, treasurer Matthew Coleman, European credit chief Iftikhar Ali and credit trader Gopi Karunakaran—left the firm. Ali’s departure was apparently triggered by his unhappiness with James Caird’s compensation policy.

Ali joined Millennium Management, Coleman Warwick Capital Partners and Karunakaran Tricadia Capital.
