BlueCrest Capital Management money manager Wayne Leslie has left the hedge fund, according to two people familiar with the matter, who asked not to be identified because they’re not authorized to speak about it.
Leslie is the latest in a string of people that have left BlueCrest since December, when the firm said it would return about $7 billion of client money to focus on managing billionaire founder Michael Platt’s wealth and that of his partners.
Ed Orlebar, a London-based spokesman for BlueCrest, declined to comment on Leslie’s departure. Leslie couldn’t be reached for comment.
Mortgage bond traders John Roach and Neil Aggarwal recently left the firm, people familiar with the matter said earlier this month. Money managers John McNiff and Steve Waugh in New York and Daniel Escobar and Jihan Bowes-Little in London have also recently departed, according to other people familiar with the matter.
