David Riley, who as head of sovereigns at Fitch Ratings stripped the U.K. of its triple-A credit rating, is joining one of the country's largest hedge funds.
Riley was named head of credit strategy at BlueBay, which manages US$55.7 billion. He will formally join the firm in September; he left Fitch earlier this month.
"We believe market developments since 2008 demonstrate that the pricing of sovereign and corporate risk is becoming increasingly interdependent," new boss Mark Pool, BlueBay's chief investment officer, said.

David's experience at Fitch has left him very well-positioned to provide a unique perspective on this interconnection, and I look forward to working with him."
