Cinctive Capital Management has hired investment pros with backgrounds at Caxton Associates and Moore Capital Management to boost their platform buildout.

The New York-based firm, founded in 2019, has boosted its global macro and healthcare teams with four hires.

Jeff Enslin, who previously spent more than 20 years with Caxton Associates, joins as macro portfolio manager.

The healthcare team of Jay Kim and Sue Lee, previously of Moore, will join Cinctive as portfolio manager and senior analyst, respectively.

Chandler Willett, previously the founder of Stevens Point Capital, also joins as a healthcare PM.

Cinctive has expanded from its initial focus on global long/short equity strategies to add global macro and quantitative capabilities.

“Since starting Cinctive, our goal has been to expand our strategies and teams for the benefit of our investors,” said Said Rich Schimel, founder and CIO.

“Adding experienced talent is integral to our continued success and we are pleased at the number of seasoned investment teams here at Cinctive.”
