Three Things This Hedge Fund CEO Doesn’t Want To Hear In An Interview (BusinessInsider)
Richard Chilton has been on Wall Street since 1978. In that time he’s built his hedge fund, Chilton Investments, into a firm with about $4 billion assets under management. To do that, he’s had to learn to sniff out who will make an excellent employee… and who will not. In a recent interview with Skiddy von Stade, the CEO of the finance career site OneWire, Chilton shared the questions he asks to find out if the person in front of him has the stuff to work at his fund.

Can Europe’s low growth and high unemployment go on forever? (IrishTimes)
The hedge fund industry is characterised by many things, not least by change. One well known City of London analyst recently described different generations of hedge fund managers in terms of army officers who got their commissions in very different ways. There is a world of difference between an officer who received his promotion on the battlefield and one who got his while commanding a desk. So it is with hedge funds: anyone who thrived during the 2000-2003 great technology meltdown and also performed well during the financial crisis has proved his worth in battle.

‘Risky Business’ Report Aims to Frame Climate Change as Economic Issue (WSJ)
Former Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, ex-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Tom Steyer, a hedge-fund billionaire and major Democratic donor, are linking arms Tuesday to release a report, Risky Business, that argues U.S. companies should treat climate change as any other business threat. The report, which says climate change could cost the country billions of dollars over the next two decades, is the product of a bipartisan group of former cabinet officers, lawmakers, corporate leaders and scientists.

Asness Touts Passive Investing Titan Bogle (Finalternatives)
Vanguard Group’s Jack Bogle is no fan of hedge funds, but one prominent hedge fund manager is a big fan of his. AQR Capital Management’s Clifford Asness says he touts Bogle, one of the pioneers of passive, index-based investing—and not his own hedge fund—to family members seeking investment advice. “The average relative asking for advice, I say, ‘Have you heard of this man Jack Bogle? He’s a very nice man,” Asness told the Morningstar Investment Conference in Chicago.

Goldman Sachs hires senior fixed income traders (eFinancialNews)
Andrea Casulli, previously a managing director and head of linear rates at UBS, and Garry Naughton, ex-Deutsche Bank European head of government bond trading, started at the bank last week, according to the UK’s Financial Services register. Both have joined as co-heads of its European government bond trading business, based in London. The pair will replace Nick Bhuta, former head of government bond trading, who left the bank to join hedge fund Tudor Capital earlier this year. For both Casulli and Naughton, the move is a homecoming of sorts.
