Citadel names Asian and Europe

Multi-alternative asset management group Citadel Investment has recruited Nick Taylor as a senior managing director and head of principal investments for Asia and Europe. He joins from Credit Suisse, where he co-founded and led one of Credit Suisse’s internal hedge funds, Modal Capital Partners.

Taylor will report to Tim Throsby, CEO of Citadel Asia. He is the most recent in a series of senior-level appointments at Citadel. Earlier this month, the firm announced that David Noh, previously with Merrill Lynch, will join as head of Asian Merchant Banking, and Patrik Edsparr will join as CEO for Citadel Europe and head of global fixed income. He joins from JPMorgan Chase. Additionally, Kaveh Alamouti joins from Moore Capital, as head of global macro investments.
