The MFA also added six other hedge fund executives to its board. The new members are Citadel Investment Group’s Gerald Beeson, Caxton Associates’ Scott Bernstein, Avenue Capital Group’s Sonia Gardner, Moore Capital Management’s Michael Inserra, Maverick Capital’s William Goodell and Renaissance Technologies’ James Rowen.
