Pequot man moves to Amaranth


More people are leaving Art Samberg's Pequot with the news that Emil Westergard, the analyst on the $600 million heathcare fund run by Faraz Naqvi, has left the firm and is joining Amaranth, the multi-strategy fund run by Nick Maounis.

It follows the departure of Jerry Schendel, who recently announced that he was leaving to start his own equity fund. Schendel has run the $600 million Pequot Telecom-munications & Media fund. A number of analysts in his team are also thought to be leaving.
