Segantii Hiring Spree Continues With Addition Of Isometric Trading Chief

Oct 5 2012 | 1:11pm ET

Segantii Asset Management may not be adding to its asset base anymore, but it is continuing to add to its headcount.

The Hong Kong hedge fund, which soft-closed its flagship this summer after more than doubling its assets to US$620 million, has hired its at least 10th new staffer this year. The newest to join its team is Ambrose Meau, former head of trading at Isometric Investment.

Meau's hiring comes on the heels of Nigel Hellewell's. Hellewell, formerly of BlueCrest Capital Management, was named chief operating officer earlier this week.

In the second quarter, Segantii hired former Factorial Management executive Lewis Fellas, Barclays veteran Wei Huang, former Credit Suisse executive Kirtes Bharti, former Bank of America executive Daniel Ho, FrontPoint Partners veteran Kisalaya Singh, former Mizuho Securities executive Maximillian von Etzdorf, Daiwa Capital Markets vet Kong Yu and former Caliburn Capital Partners analyst Martin Goulet.

Prior to joining Isometric, Meau worked at Deephaven Capital Management in Asia.
