Hedge fund firms hired 163 investment professionals in March, building on the steady industry hiring trend that has been building throughout 2013. Among the top hedge funds that were actively hiring are Millennium Management, Princeton Alpha, health care focused Blue Jay Capital, European distressed focused Eyck Capital and industry stalwart BlueCrest Capital Management.

According to HFObserver, the continued exodus of traders from the large banks such as Credit Suisse and Citigroup, has been providing hedge fund firms with a deep pool of available talent.
