She is listed as the chief investment officer and the managing principal of a long short fund.

We were not able to speak with her, at least not yet.

We don't know the origin of this move but it does say something about the business that she has tried to build since leaving cabc world markets.

She had plans to get into the trading business.

That is why she bought the brokerage.

She plans to hire hundreds of people to get into the bond trading business.
