DE Shaw’s decision to scale back on staff numbers came as part of a lengthy review by the fund manager’s senior staff after it suffered from a large outflow of investors this year. A statement from the group said: “The DE Shaw group has taken steps to strengthen our business and maximise value for our investors over the long-term.”At the start of the month, DE Shaw managed around $21bn (£13.2bn) across its funds. The New York based firm, however, has suffered from roughly $7bn in redemptions made during the last few months.The cuts comes after one of the worst periods for the hedge fund sector.DE Shaw, which was founded in 1988 by David Shaw, currently employs 1,500 people in the US, UK, Europe, Middle East and Asia.Shaw no longer manages the day-to-day functions of the firm. whatsapp DE Shaw slashes its headcount by 10pc as investors lose faith Tags: NULL More From Our Partners Native American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.org Tuesday 28 September 2010 11:23 pm last_img
