Tudor Investment has continued its European expansion with a trio of new hires including former Goldman Sachs managing director Robert Gold.
Gold joined Tudor earlier this month from Idalion Capital – ironically the hedge fund set up last year by former Tudor portfolio managers Michael Georgiou, Miguel Mayo and German Molina – where he had been since its inception.
Before this he spent 14 years working for Goldman Sachs Asset Management as a managing director responsible for global fixed income and currency management.
In the past month, Tudor has also been making less senior hires. Naeem Wahid, a G10 FX strategist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, joined in September. Mitja Blazincic, who formerly worked in quantitative solutions and innovation in Morgan Stanley’s fixed income division, also joined Tudor earlier this month.
This marks a year of expansion for the hedge fund’s European operation – in September last year, it had 52 front office employees, a figure that has grown to 67 in 2014.
In August, it hired Nick Munns and Matthew Jones from hedge fund Omni Partners’ macro team, according to filings on the Financial Conduct Authority register. Munns was previously co-manager of the Omni macro fund while Jones was an analyst in its global macro team.
Tudor’s European headquarters is currently based in an ostentatious 25-acre estate in Surrey, complete with a pool, tennis courts, a gym and a bar. Now, it’s plumping for a London office – moving across two floors in a 40,000 square feet office on Burlington Square in the West End.
