Citadel taps whiz Andrew Liebeskind to trade for $30B hedge fund

Billionaire investor Ken Griffin has hired Andrew Liebeskind as a senior trader for his massive, $30 billion Citadel hedge fund, The Post has learned.

Liebeskind was most recently the head trader at PDT Partners, a hedge fund with $5 billion in assets started by former Morgan Stanley alum Peter Muller. He is also a Goldman Sachs alum, trading stocks at the Wall Street bank in 2005.

The 35-year old wunderkind will trade in the fund’s Surveyor Capital fund, which feeds into its flagship Wellington fund, two people familiar with hiring told The Post.

Liebeskind will report directly to Carl Simon, the head of trading for Surveyor, one source said.

Ultimately, he will trade under the supervision of Mark Holder, the head of global trading, according to the sources.
