Moore Capital Management has recruited a former portfolio manager to head its fixed-income effort in Europe.
The New York-based hedge fund, which has made a series of high-profile hires in Europe over the past two years, turned to a familiar face in Maurizio Alfano, who returns to the firm after an eight-year absence. Alfano spent a decade at Moore before leaving to found his own hedge fund in 2002.
Alfano left that hedge fund, Maven Capital Management, in 2005 to join Barclays Capital. He left that post in June to join Moore as head of fixed income in Europe, Financial News reports.
Moore recently opened a new office in Zurich, Switzerland, where the newly-hired Jean-Philippe Blochet, a co-founder of Brevan Howard Asset Management, is based. It’s also been boosting its marketing and investor relations teams at its European headquarters in London.
