Two Brevan Howard Partners Quit

Aug 4 2011 | 1:40pm ET

Brevan Howard Asset Management is down another two partners.

Krishnan Sadasivam, who traded for its flagship hedge fund, and economist Filippo Altissimo have left the firm, Reuters reports. Their exits precede that of co-founder James Vernon—the "v" in Brevan—who will leave in September.

Sadasivan resigned this week. He had been poised to run a new India-focused hedge fund for Brevan, but the fund was never launched. It is unclear whether that failure resulted in his exit.

Sadavisam formerly worked at The Children's Investment Fund and KDA Capital.

Altissimo, a former economist at the European Central Bank, resigned for personal reasons, a source told Reuters.
