Jason Collins has left the firm to join BlackRock, where he will start as head of institutional client business in Australia on April 22. Collins had served as head of Ascalon's Australian arm.

Lance was a co-founder and CEO of DragonBack Capital prior to joining Ascalon. DragonBack was acquired last year by Double Haven Capital Management.
