Moore's Bedford Retires

Dec 15 2010 | 10:09am ET

Moore Capital Management has lost one of its top—and most senior—traders with the retirement of Henry Bedford.

Bedford, who has served as a senior portfolio manager at the firm for seven years, has taken early retirement at the age of 56, the Financial Times reports. He has worked under former GLG Partners star trader Greg Coffey on Moore's macro portfolios for the past two years.

Bedford's exit is the second of a senior Moore staffer in as many months. In November, chief risk officer Barry Schachter retired.

Before joining Moore, Bedford worked at Caxton Associates and Goldman Sachs.
