The co-head of Chicago-based hedge fund firm Citadel's global credit group is departing the firm this week.
Bloomberg reported that Jamey Thompson quit to spend more time with his family. Ryan Garino and David Grossman will continue to lead Citadel's global credit group after Thompson's departure.
Thompson joined Citadel in 2008 as a credit portfolio manager and was appointed one of three co-heads--along with Garino and Grossman--of the firm's credit group last year.
Founded in 1990 by Ken Griffin, Citadel has about $15 billion in AuM.
