Capula Investment Management has snared the recently-retired head of global rates and currency trading at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.
David Gu will become co-chief investment officer at the London-based fixed-income hedge fund later this year, Bloomberg News reports. He will be charged with developing new funds and strategies, as well as recruiting traders, Capula founder Yan Huo told investors in a letter.
Gu retired from BofA, where he was also co-head of global markets in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, earlier this month. He was one of the highest-paid employees at Merrill Lynch prior to its acquisition by BofA in 2008; Gu made $19.8 million in 2007 and $18.7 million in 2008, sums revealed after then-New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo subpoenaed the information.
Capula has about US$6 billion in assets under management.
