Yassir Benjelloum-Touimi is surrounding himself with familiar faces at his new hedge fund.

The former head of European credit flow trading at UBS has hired at least four former members of his desk at the bank to join Arcade Capital Partners. The London-based credit hedge fund is set to debut in the third quarter with more than US$100 million.

And when it does, Anouar Bahbouhi, Edward Brunni, Russell Feldman and Victor Martinez will be there with Benjelloum-Touimi, Financial News reports.

Bahbouhi was a credit index and options trader at UBS, Brunni head of investment-grade corporates, Feldman a European analyst and Martinez a global financials and sovereigns trader.
