Eisler Capital’s push to establish itself as a multi-strategy hedge fund has seen the company embark on a major recruitment campaign with ex-Goldman Sachs staff featuring prominently, according to a report by eFinancial Careers.

Since hiring former Goldman partner Alan Marcus back in January, Eisler has added several strategists and traders who cut their teeth with Goldman to its teams in both London and New York.

The new hires include two former Goldman executive directors – Rishabh Vaid, who joined Eisler Capital as a quantitative researcher in April after nearly eight years at Goldman in London and Bangalore, and Tibor Kucs, a quantitative strategist, who moved to Eisler this month after a 18-year stint with Goldman in London. 

In New York, Eisler has boosted its team with the additions of portfolio manager Matthew Lee and quantitative strategist Martial Ren, from hedge fund PinnBrook and Morgan Stanley respectively, but both had previously spent time at Goldman – Lee until 2016 and Ren until 2022.

Eisler founder Edward Eisler is himself a Goldman Sachs alumnus, having spent 20 years at the company holding the position of partner and co-head of markets when he left in 2013.

Eisler Capital’s additional (non-Goldman) new recruits this year include at least eight new portfolio managers – Mathieu Recayte from Nomura, Thomas Barrau from insurer AXA, Eric Lonergan from hedge fund M&G, Abhishek Ghose from hedge fund Tudor, Pierre Bost from quant fund Qube, Yves Masselin from JPMorgan, and Siddhartha Sandilya from Weiss.
