Hedge fund Occitan Capital Partners has beefed up its investment team with four new hires.
Two of the new additions, Alexandre Capez and Othmane Akherraz, are veterans of Nomura Holdings. Capez was head of structured volatility at Nomura and Akherraz an equity derivatives trader, Financial News reports. Both are now convexity and volatility traders at Occitan.
In addition, Occitan snagged Simon Price, formerly of Lansdowne Partners, as a financials analyst, and Christopher McNally, late of RWC Partners, as a global industrials analyst.
Akherraz, Capez, McNally and Price all joined the hedge fund earlier this month.
