Edgar Senior, the global co-head of capital services at Credit Suisse Group's prime brokerage, is leaving the bank to join a hedge fund.

Senior will leave Credit Suisse at the end of the month after four years at the bank, and will remain an adviser through the end of the year. Financial News reports that he'll seek to join a hedge fund following a three-to-six month sabbatical.

Robert Leonard, Senior's co-head, will become global head of capital services upon Senior's exit.

Senior joined Credit Suisse from Goldman Sachs, where he was head of European hedge fund structuring and marketing.
