A handful of the traders ousted from Brevan Howard Asset Management this summer have landed at BlueCrest Capital Management.
The London-based firm has hired a former team of five from Brevan, led by Jason Feasey and Wayne Leslie, Bloomberg News reports. The group left Brevan in August, among the roughly one dozen traders to exit that hedge fund in the wake of losses suffered by its flagship.
