Deutsche Bank Vets Found Credit Hedge Fund

Oct 2 2014 | 8:16am ET

A pair of former top Deutsche Bank credit traders have reunited to launch a hedge fund.

Vassilis Paschopoulos and Nikos Kargadouris have founded Balliol Capital in London. The new firm won Financial Conduct Authority approval last month, eFinancialCareers reports.

In addition to Paschopoulos and Kargadouris, the credit-focused firm features James Mabey as chief operating officer. Mabey joins Balliol from MC Squared Global Investors, where he was also COO.

Paschopoulos was head of European investment-grade trading at Deutsche Bank until his exit last year amidst a reorganization of the bank’s credit business. He had returned to the firm two years earlier after a two-year stint at UBS. Kargadouris worked at Deutsche Bank from 2010 through 2012, when he joined hedge fund Lucidus Capital Partners.
