Administrator Citco To Cut Jobs

Oct 30 2008 | 8:49am ET

Little more than a year ago, hedge fund administrator Citco Fund Services was planning to expand its operations in Ireland. But the industry downturn has turned those plans upside down.

Last February, Citco announced plans to add 150 jobs to its Cork hedge fund administration operation over the following three years.
