Alan Howard, the founder of Brevan Howard Asset Management, is stepping down from his role as CEO. According to reports, Aron Landy, the firm’s chief risk officer, will assume the CEO role.
The firm, which manages about $7.5 billion in assets, will see the management shakeup occur at the end of the year.
“Going forward, Alan will focus on his own trading activities and will, of course, remain closely involved with the firm’s investment strategies,” the firm said in a regulatory filing. Howard had founded his own AH fund in 2017.
