"Over the course of the last eleven years, I have been fortunate to be the CEO of Knight Capital Group. Together we achieved a wide variety of the business goals we had established. With the transaction with GETCO completed, and after careful consideration, I have decided that now is the right time for me to resign as Executive Chairman and leave the organization...I take great pride in the fact that “legacy Knight” is operating so well as it moves into KCG Holdings. And I am gratified that the values at the core of Knight’s DNA – client service, integrity and maintaining the highest standard of business ethics – will continue to be core values of KCG going forward. Our business success is dependent upon relationships built on trust, and it is due to the committed and hardworking employees of Knight that our company has been successful through the years. Similarly, it has been an honor to work closely with Knight’s clients...All the best, Tom Joyce." [BI]

Make millions, lose millions, who cares, what's the point of it all? Greg Coffey, co-chief investment officer of Moore Capital Management LLC’s European business, is leaving the hedge-fund industry after a 20-year trading career, according to a letter sent to investors...Assets in Coffey’s macro fund have slumped to about $100 million from as much as $1.6 billion in 2010. The fund had fallen about 10 percent this year through August before rebounding almost 9 percent last month, according to people with knowledge of the matter, who asked not to be named because the information is private. The fund lost 5 percent last year. Coffey realized that after he had recovered most of this year’s losses in one week in September, he wasn’t as excited about his gains as he might have been in the past, two people who know him said. Coffey then decided it was time to end his 20-year career trading, the people said. Moore Capital’s Coffey to Retire From Hedge-Fund Industry [Bloomberg]
