Scott Goodwin, head of credit trading at Anchorage Capital Group, is leaving the hedge fund manager, according to people with knowledge of the matter.
Goodwin, also a money manager at Anchorage, has been a key force behind an effort from fund managers to bring liquidity back to the single-name credit default swap market. He is a former head of high yield bond and credit derivative trading at Citigroup.
Anchorage, founded in 2003, focuses on credit, special situations, and illiquid investment strategies, according to its website.
Jonathan Gasthalter, a spokesman for Anchorage, declined to comment.
