Fresh from his victory over the Securities and Exchange Commission in a major hedge-fund insider-trading case, derivatives salesman Jon-Paul Rorech has found a new job.
Rorech, who had worked at Deutsche Bank before being charged with passing confidential tips to a Millennium Partners hedge fund manager, will join UBS next month, Dow Jones Newswires reports. He’ll serve as a managing director in the firm’s head fund credit sales department.
