BlueCrest Currency Manager Quits

Apr 13 2011 | 1:10pm ET

A top BlueCrest Capital Management currencies manager has left the firm.

Reto Feller is considering joining a private bank in a management role, FX Week reports.

Feller managed BlueCrest's proprietary currency portfolio, focusing on its medium- and long-term trading models. He joined the hedge fund four years ago from Zephyr Currency Partners, which he co-founded. Before launching that hedge fund, he worked at Graham Capital Management and several banks, including HSBC Private Bank, Merrill Lynch, Commerzbank and UBS.

Feller's exit follows that of Andrew McCaffery, who helped found its Alignment Investors institutional fixed-income group. McCaffery left to rejoin Aberdeen Asset Management earlier this month.
