Highbridge Capital Management's top risk-management executive will leave the firm at the end of the year, capping off a nine-year run at the JPMorgan Chase-owned hedge fund.

Subramanyam Venkataraman joined Highbridge from Morgan Stanley nine years. He will be succeeded as chief risk officer by Jeff Holman on Oct. 1.

Venkataraman's decision to leave was a personal one, Reuters reports.

Holman is currently head of Highbridge's quantitative portfolio construction effort. He formerly worked at Citadel Investment Group.
