It turns out that Steve Cohen’s brother-in-law wasn’t the only person shown the door at Citadel’s Aptigon stock-picking unit. About a third of his co-workers also fulfilled their destiny in getting canned or otherwise driven away by Ken Griffin, one of Wall Street’s key rites of passage. And following them was one Lucy DeStefano, Aptigon’s former head of trading, last month.

DeStefano, as custom and legal instruments dictate, will now take the better part of year to decompress and deGriffinify. And then, it’s off to Soros Fund Management to help finance the New World Order and duck the flying lamps.

At Soros, DeStefano will report to head of trading Jessica Murphy and join the firm’s trading team to focus on systematic trading strategy for macro investments…. DeStefano graduated from Princeton University and previously worked at hedge fund Pine River Capital Management.

Lawyer: George Soros Reserves His Strength To Plow Through Large Numbers Of Women, Not To Throw Lamps At Them (Like They Do To Him)

If you were to have told me in August 2011 that a story about George Soros's love life involving women 60 years his junior, "on again, off again non-exclusive relationships," dream apartments, broken promises, and broken lamps would still be unfolding 19 months later and getting better at each turn I would have told you to check yourself. And yet it has! With an amazing update that involves George Soros allegedly being assaulted with the light fixture he allegedly assaulted his non-exclusive girlfriend with and an official reminder that George Soros has had sex with more women by 9AM than most people have in their entire lives.
