Autonomy’s Christoffersen Returns To Goldman Sachs

Nov 25 2009 | 12:43pm ET

Kasper Christoffersen’s two-year hedge fund sojourn has come to an end.

The former Goldman Sachs European government bond trading head is returning to the Wall Street giant on Dec. 1, Bloomberg News reports. Christoffersen has spent the last two years at hedge fund Autonomy Capital Research. That firm, founded by Lehman Brothers veteran Robert Gibbins, has hit hard times, suspending redemptions from its $1.2 billion flagship as the fund lost 40% last year.

Back at Goldman, Kristoffersen will serve as co-head of the European investment-grade syndicate group alongside Ian Gilday. The newly-minted managing director will be based in London.
