London-based hedge fund Eisler Capital has made a key hire as it continues its transformation into a multi-strategy investment business with the appointment of former Goldman Sachs partner Alain Marcus to lead trader recruitment, according to a report by Bloomberg.

The report cites an internal memo sent by founder Edward Eisler as revealing that New York-based Marcus will handle talent acquisition and development for the London-based firm in what is a newly created role.

Eisler Capital, which manages about $3.5 billion, returned about 15% in its multi-strategy hedge fund last year and, in future, plans to focus entirely on its multi-strategy business having taken the decision to wind down its debut hedge fund and abandon plans to launch a second fund.

At Goldman Sachs, Marcus managed sales and distribution businesses, and most recently, ran day-to-day operations of Black Creek Mexico, a private equity real estate firm. He has also previously held the position of managing director at Morgan Stanley.
