Barclays Sign

Barclays credit trader Brad Visokey left the bank last week to join billionaire hedge fund manager Michael Platt’s BlueCrest Capital Management.

Bloomberg News reports that Visokey, 39, will join the firm as a money manager focused on investment-grade and crossover debt, which has split high-grade and high-yield ratings, he confirmed in a telephone interview.

He had been with the British bank since 2012 after spending eight years at Deutsche Bank.

In the meantime, Bloomberg also reports that David Chin, UBS’s head of corporate client solutions for Asia, is retiring from the investment bank, a person familiar with the matter said.

The 48-year-old is leaving after 21 years at the firm, the person said, asking not to be identified as the move isn’t public. Rob Stewart, a UBS spokesman in Hong Kong, declined to comment.

Finally, Bloomberg reports that Elad Shraga, Deutsche Bank’s head of structured finance, is leaving after 15 years at the company to start his own fund, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.
