Once on the shortlist of names to succeed Citadel Investment Group founder Kenneth Griffin, Anand Parekh left the huge Chicago hedge fund last week after several months of disappointing returns in his group.
According to The New York Times, Parekh, who headed global stock trading at Citadel, left the firm on Friday. While his group was in the black, the Times reports that it has lagged Citadel’s six other business groups.

Parekh is the former head of the North American structuring group at Deutsche Bank.
