Two Quit Credit Suisse Capital Intro. Team

Jul 1 2011 | 1:04am ET

Credit Suisse has lost a pair of prime brokerage team members to clients.

Lucy Blair and Sophia Damianou resigned from the bank’s capital introduction team. Their departure follows that of, but is unrelated to, the exit of Edgar Senior, Credit Suisse’s former global head of prime brokerage.

Like Senior, Blair and Damianou are joining hedge funds. The former, a director at Credit Suisse, will become work on sales and marketing at Avantium Investment Management, Financial News reports. Avantium was founded by former Deutsche Bank proprietary trader Kay Haigh and will employ a global macro emerging markets strategy.

The latter, an associate at the bank, will work at the London office of Mesirow Financial, a U.S.-based fund of hedge funds.

At Credit Suisse, Blair covered British investors and managers, while Damianou handled hedge fund investors in the Benelux region as well as U.K. and Nordic investors and managers.
