Alan Howard’s era as the leading trader at Brevan Howard Asset Management appears to have come to an end.

The veteran investor, whose macro trading prowess made him a billionaire, is no longer managing a significant amount of money for the firm, according to people with direct knowledge of the matter. While Howard had already transitioned out of the day-to-day running of the firm in 2019, he was still managing his own fund, some client money and about a 10th of the capital in the firm’s main strategy as recently as last year.
