Brevan Howard has hired a chief technology officer for one of its largest strategies as the $13 billion hedge fund ramps up hiring amid a streak of strong returns.
Gurpreet Singh, formerly the CTO at Point72 Asset Management’s Cubist unit, is set to join Brevan Howard’s Alpha Strategies fund next week as CTO, according to sources familiar with the matter. Singh departed last summer after more than a decade at Point72.
Brevan Howard declined to comment through a company spokesman.
The hedge fund has been angling to build out the Alpha Strategies unit — a multi-manager, systematic fund with a focus on relative value and directional strategies in fixed income and FX. It made a rash of hires last summer, including hiring a US business development head for Alpha Strategies.
