Moore Capital Management, LP, a global investment management firm, today announced that Kostas Pantazopoulos will join the firm in London as a Managing Director in January 2019. He will work closely with Louis Bacon on the firms global macro program.
Mr. Pantazopoulos comes to Moore Capital after spending over 20 years at Goldman Sachs, where he was a partner and, for many years, Global Head of Rates Trading. Most recently, he served as Head of Risk Management Strategies for Goldman Sachs Securities Division.
We are delighted to welcome Kostas to Moore Capital, said Louis Bacon, the firms Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman. Over the past two decades, his sound risk strategy, insightful approach to evaluating the macro environment, and exceptional ability to generate profits — even under adverse market conditions — earned the trust and respect of his clients, including myself, and his colleagues. At Moore Capital, his deep experience and trading expertise across macro markets will bring a new perspective that will enhance the firms investment processes and idea generation for the benefit of our investors.
I am thrilled to be joining a firm of the caliber of Moore Capital, which I have long admired for its insights into the complexities of the global economy and long-term track record, said Pantazopoulos. I look forward to collaborating with Louis and the Moore Capital team to advance the firms investment objectives.
Pantazopoulos joined Goldman Sachs in 1998 and during his career also served on senior committees including Firm-wide Partnership, Firm-wide Risk, Securities Executive, and European Management. He holds a Ph.D. in Science/Computational Finance from Purdue University and is a prolific author on analytic aspects of the markets.
Pantazopoulos hiring follows several other recent hires based in Moore Capitals London office, including portfolio managers Laurent Moulin, Anindya Andy Mohinta, and Alexandru Alex Radu.
