Hedge fund hotel Quant EMS has snagged a casualty of the recent cuts at Citigroup's investment bank.
Paul Kelly has joined Quant EMS as director of business development. He is charged with building the mini-prime's client base in Europe.
Kelly left Citi in December after serving as head of the bank's European wholesale execution services unit.
