Zou joins ExodusPoint from Goldman Sachs, and will focus on alpha signal research in FX and rates.

He began his career at Goldman as an associate in January 2019, and served at the rank for almost two years. He was promoted to executive director in December 2020.

Zou joins a continued tide of staff leaving the world of banking for hedge funds.

Last month, Goldman’s Yuriy Podoshev left the bank to join Bridgewater Associates as engineering director. In January, Sid Chaturvedi left Goldman and joined Millennium as senior portfolio manager.

ExodusPoint is planning to expand its team further in London. The firm is hiring a junior trading engineer, a technology developer, and an infrastructure graduate analyst, according to its LinkedIn page.
