Brevan Howard Asset Management has added a top bank currency executive just months after parting ways with its top foreign exchange manager and closing his hedge fund.
Vincent Craignou has been named a senior trader at Brevan. While the firm no longer has a dedicated currency fund—and does not plan to launch a new one, according to The Wall Street Journal—its flagship Master Fund, a macro strategy, does a great deal of currency trading.
