BarCap's Quinn To Caxton

Mar 23 2012 | 12:26pm ET

Caxton Associates has added a Barclays banker to its credit team.

Jason Quinn will join the New York-based hedge fund in about a month, Bloomberg News reports. Quinn was a managing director at Barclays Capital, trading auto-linked credit-default swaps and CDS indices, having joined the bank in 2008 when it acquired Lehman Brothers. At Lehman, Quinn led the U.S. high-grade flow desk.

At Caxton, which has $9.7 billion in assets, Quinn will work with former Barclays colleague Peter Agnes. Agnes, formerly head of credit opportunities at Barclays, moved to Caxton last April.
