Marble Bar Asset Management, a London-based hedge fund with USD2 billion under management, has hired Guy Shahar, an equity derivatives trader at Goldman Sachs. Gilad Hayeem, chief executive, said Shahar will look at hedging strategies for Marble Bar, a systematic long/short European equity fund. He will focus on inherent risks in the portfolio, said Hayeem, declining further comment.
At Goldman, Shahar reported to Peter Selman, head of equity derivatives trading. Selman referred calls to Rebecca Nelson, who declined comment on any replacement. Shahar was on gardening leave and could not be reached.
