Crispin Odey told a London court that allegations he assaulted a young banker more than 20 years ago at his home were a “horrible slur.”

The 62-year-old hedge fund chief was testifying at a trial where he’s charged with one count of indecent assault. He said he invited the woman, who was in her 20s at the time, to his home because he thought it would be an “entertaining and interesting” evening.
