Hedge fund Omni Partners has added Barclays' former European stock-trading chief to launch a new strategy.
Howard Spooner joined the London-based hedge fund last week. He'll launch a European equities portfolio at the firm, seeded with a small amount from Omni, and will later begin fundraising, Financial News reports.
Spooner left Barclays in August after stops at Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank and SG Warburg. At several of those firms, including Barclays, he focused on technology, media and telecommunications.
