New York-based multi-strategy hedge fund firm Schonfeld has continued its hiring spree with senior appointments on both sides of the pond – portfolio manager Andrew Prentice in London, and head of business analytics Amit Gupta in the Big Apple, according to a report by eFinancial Careers.
Prentice, an Oxford-educated physicist, was most recently an executive director at Goldman Sachs, working in European government bond trading. He previously worked for Deutsche Bank and Barclays.
Gupta meanwhile, was previously a vice president at rival hedge fund AQA and was most recently in crypto as a quantitative trader at quant fund GTS Digital.
Schonfeld’s big recruitment drive began earlier this year with the appointments of a number of high profile bankers including ex-JPMorgan MD Lav Lukic and ex-Morgan Stanley MD Andrew Silverman. Portfolio manager Marc Tishfield also joined the firm from Millennium.
