Stuart Currey joins Millennium as a quant trader. He was only Citadel Securities’ head of APAC systematic trading for 16 months, but spent the previous decade as a quant trader for UBS, where he was latterly a cash risk trader.

Currey’s arrival comes as Millennium has been hiring portfolio managers in Asia, including from Citadel Securities. Ryan Liu joined this month as a senior PM in systematic trading after seven years at Citadel Securities. Another PM that joined from elsewhere was Varun Nayyar, who spent the last six years as a PM at Segantii Capital before joining Millennium this month.
