Taking a job at Tudor Investment Corp currently doesn’t seem like the wisest career move. Yes, it’s a big name hedge fund and pays its employees very well, but it’s also cutting – 15% of headcount is set to go.
But while it’s making lay offs globally, Tudor has also been hiring – at least selectively – for its London operation.
Amit Tanna, a partner and portfolio manager at Bluecrest Capital Management who left Michael Platt’s hedge fund in February, has now re-emerged at Tudor Capital in London.
Meanwhile, James Camboni, who was latterly a macro trader at Noble Group and who previously worked at both Nomura and Jefferies, also joined Tudor in August.
Last month, Tudor said that it was cutting 15% of its 400 or so employees globally following a tough operating environment during which more than $2bn of assets under management left.
But its London headcount has been slowly increasing. It hired Joseph Bradley, a chemicals equity analyst at Credit Suisse and Tomas Kiskis, a researcher from Sanford Berstein in July.
Meanwhile, Christian Rolvung, who was a director in Blackrock’s Scientific Equities Team in San Francisco, relocated to London for a quant role.
