CQS recruits Kotlar-Bouget from BlueCrest for investor team


CQS, the $10 billion alternative asset management firm led by Michael Hintze, has announced a further boost to its client service function with the appointment of Leila Kotlar-Bouget from BlueCrest.

She previously held a similar role at BlueCrest for several years and is joining at a time when CQS is building up its investor relations effort and diversifying its client base on the back of excellent firm-wide performance over the past couple of years.

The firm’s CQS Directional Opportunities Fund – managed by Hintze himself – recently won the EuroHedge award for Fund of the Year in 2010
