Odey Hires BarCap Veteran Bond For Macro

Oct 4 2010 | 2:36am ET

Odey Asset Management has snagged the former head of global asset allocation at Barclays Capital.

Tim Bond has joined the London-based hedge fund as a macro strategist, although he said he may eventually manage money—or even run his own hedge fund—at the firm, Financial News reports. Bond said he picked Odey because of the "incredibly good stock-picking skills and strong analysis."

Best known for his work on Barclays' Capital Equity Gilt Study, Bond left the firm in July after a 12-year run. He has previous hedge fund experience, having worked at Moore Capital Management prior to joining Barlcays in 1998.
