Segantii Picks BlueCrest Vet As COO

Oct 4 2012 | 11:01am ET

Segantii Asset Management has named a former BlueCrest Capital Management partner as its chief operating officer.

Nigel Hellewell has joined the Hong Kong-based firm, one of the fastest-growing in Asia. The firm soft-closed its flagship hedge fund over the summer after more than doubling its assets under management over the past year. Segantii managed US$620 million in June.

In addition to being one of the fastest-growing Asian hedge funds in terms of assets, Segantii has also been on a hiring spree, adding eight new faces in the second quarter alone.

Hellewell was a partner at BlueCrest for the past four years, leaving the hedge fund in June. He formerly worked at Deutsche Bank, Capital Markets Co. and Ernst & Young.
