Highbridge Capital Management has doubled the size of its London hedge fund team this year, adding two more portfolio managers over the past two weeks.
The firm snagged York Capital Management’s Juan Lamo de Espinosa two weeks ago, and on Monday added Tricadia Capital’s Owain Griffiths, The New York Times reports. The hires follow those of Claren Road’s John Aylward and SAC Capital Advisors’ Wayne Chambless and Christopher Procaccini earlier this year.
The hires bring the number of Highbridge hedge fund managers in London to eight to 10.
Lamo de Espinosa, a former Citadel Investment Group trader, will lead Highbridge’s European equities division when he joins in July with three or four traders. He held the same post at York.
Griffiths, who will report to Aylward, was a European credit manager for Tricadia.
