Citadel To Offer Global Macro Strategies

Mar 11 2008 | 12:29pm ET

Citadel Investment Group has lured a Moore Capital Management portfolio manager to run a new hedge fund strategy and its soon-to-be-launched multi-strategy global macro unit.

Kaveh Alamouti will run Citadel’s new equity and fixed-income strategy from London. In addition to stocks and bonds, the strategy can also invest in commodities and currencies, and will feed into Citadel’s multi-strategy hedge fund.

Alamouti’s unit will also develop and launch new alternative investment strategies to feed into the firm’s existing hedge funds.

Alamouti ran a multi-strategy global macro fund at London-based Moore, which he joined in 2002. Prior to joining Moore, Alamouti ran his own hedge fund, Optimum Asset Management.
