Hedge Fund Sancus Adds Ex-Goldman Quant.

Jun 27 2014 | 9:06am ET

Credit specialist Sancus Capital has hired a new head of business development and investor relations.

Shelly Baldwin joins the hedge fund from Varadero Capital, where she also worked in I.R. The move reunites her with Sancus founder Olga Chernova, with whom she worked at Goldman Sachs.

Baldwin was a quantitative analyst at the bank, and Chernova head of U.S. correlation.

“We are pleased to have someone with Shelly’s background joining Sancus,” Chernova said. “Shelly’s background at Goldman Sachs as a fixed-income quant, and her experience building sophisticated valuation models, will add depth to our investor interactions and greatly enhance the level of service we provide our clients.”

Sancus was founded in 2007 and is based in New York.
