Jeffrey Burch, a former utility fixed-income analyst at Bank of America in London, has left the investment bank to help manage a recently launched USD1.5 billion credit derivative-focused hedge fund in New York.

Jeffrey Burch, a former utility fixed-income analyst at Bank of America in London, has left the investment bank to help manage a recently launched USD1.5 billion credit derivative-focused hedge fund in New York. He was between posts last week and could not be reached for comment.


Burch joined BofA almost a year back Morgan Stanley where has was an Institutional Investor-ranked utility analyst to cover European utility credits, but in recent months has moved away from the public sphere to provide research to BofA’s proprietary debt trading desk, according to Elizabeth Wood, spokeswoman in London. She added that the switch reflected BofA disbanding its company-specific fixed-income coverage earlier this year. 


He is joining Blue Mountain Capital, a New York-based money manager that recently formed a USD1.5 billion credit trading joint venture with London-based BlueCrest Capital, according to Andrew Feldstein, fund manager and former managing director and co-head of North American structured products and derivatives marketing at JPMorgan in New York. He said Burch was recruited to support a push by the fund into European credit trading.
