A trio of former Citadel Investment Group portfolio managers is setting up their own hedge fund shop, expected to launch this summer.
Chicago-based Gladius Investment Group was founded by Pav Sethi, global head of volatility arbitrage at Citadel until last year. He is joined by Rajesh Kedia, formerly of the volatility arbitrage group at Citadel, and Bertrand Divet, former head of credit strategies at the firm’s volatility trading and arbitrage group, according to Bloomberg News.
