Deephaven Bigwigs To Remain In Knight Fold

Minneapolis-based hedge fund Deephaven Capital Management may be on the verge of signing a new agreement with its owners that could net its management additional millions in compensation.

Now, the New York Daily News reports, Deephaven chief Colin Smith and his deputies are set to sign new, multi-million dollar contracts with Knight, keeping them at Deephaven, and setting aside rumors that Deephaven brass may have been seeking a separation or independence from Knight.
