Credit hedge fund firm Lucidus Capital Partners has hired a former UBS credit trader.
According to a Bloomberg article, Anatoly Nakum joined Lucidus last month to run its long/short credit strategy. In Nakum’s new role, he will focus on high-yield and lower-rated investment grade debt.
Nakum, who was the co-head of credit trading for North America at UBS, left the Zurich-based bank in 2011. Nakum’s past experience includes working at Barclays Capital and Deutsche Bank.
Lucidus manages about $1.5 billion in assets and was founded in 2009 as a unit of Bruce Kovner’s New York-based firm Caxton Associates.
