Benatoff will serve as co-head of the U.S. firm’s British affiliate, Financial News reports. His co-head will be named later.
A former Goldman Sachs proprietary trader, Benatoff will focus on merger, credit and special situations at Halcyon.

“Halcyon is delighted to be adding a professional of Daniele’s caliber,” Halcyon chief operating officer Thomas Hirschfeld said.
