Credit hedge fund 400 Capital Management has hired a Bank of America Merrill Lynch vet to lead its push into agency mortgage debt.
Jason Yeung has been named head of agency mortgage strategies at the New York-based firm. He is the 13th member of 400's investment team.
400 invests primarily in mortgage-backed securities.

The $815 million hedge fund is up 10.84% through the end of September.
