Citadel adds Greenlight analyst to its incubation platform

by

Citadel Investment Group has hired Greenlight Capital analyst Svetlana Ilieva to launch a new long/short value strategy that will be run from its PioneerPath incubation platform.

Ilieva, who is set to join $20 billion Citadel’s New York office on June 16, will begin managing internal money for the firm but has the option to launch her own hedge fund firm and take in outside capital after her first year. She is reportedly the ninth manager Citadel has funded since launching its PioneerPath platform last April.

A native of Bulgaria, Ilieva first visited the United States as a high school student
