Ross Williams, a former managing director in proprietary credit trading at Bear Stearns in London, has resurfaced at Peloton Partners, an investment fund set up by ex-Goldman Sachs partners Geoff Grant and Ron Beller last year. Williams said he will be based in London and focus on trading sub-investment grade credits for the group's global-macro and relative-value hedge fund. He resigned from Bear Stearns earlier this month (DW, 2/3). Beller declined comment.

Peloton Partners, which has USD1.2 billion in assets under management, is growing its reach across asset classes and recently added high-yield, crossover and distressed debt traders in its Santa Barbara office, noted an official close to the fund. In addition, the group last month nabbed Morgan Stanley's co-head of international and equity proprietary trading Michael Frydman.
