Chris Boas joined CQS (U.K.) as a senior portfolio manager for credit long/short strategies.
Mr. Boas' position is new and he represents “a strong addition” to the existing long/short team, said Michael Rummel, a spokesman, in an e-mail.
After leaving Citadel Investment Group's securities unit — where he was global head of relative value credit trading — in 2011, Mr. Boas founded Longwood Credit Partners to launch a credit hedge fund. Longwood now is closed.
CQS manages a variety of multistrategy hedge funds with about $12 billion under management.
