Thats probably still pretty relevant.

For macro I'd add Brevan Howard, Caxton, LMR, Honestly there aren't many macro funds around these days since so many have closed up shop/converted to FO. The space is definitely shifting to more quant macro.

Don't have a list, but if clueless, I would start by just googling "hedge fund firms" in Mayfair on google maps. Scrappy, but honestly helps.

Not going to repeat the lists of equity HFs in London that have been posted on this forum many times before.

As far as hiring from outside the UK: depends massively on if you have the right to work in the UK. Lots of HFs, by nature of being small / entrepeneurial businesses, are not going to be as willing as a large IB to do visa sponsorship. The talent pool in London isn't small - why would they bother?

true for IBD movers / first year analysts in general (commodity). for senior analysts / VP level, I think visa per see is not much of a problem in the UK. cheap and seamless esp. if the co is already registered in the skilled work roster

This is helpful/comforting.

I'm getting A2A soon at my current firm. One main difference between HK/China and UK/US is, most IB activities in HK/China are IPOs, versus M&A and advisory work in more advanced financial markets. While I do have two on-going M&A mandates, they are not very informative in terms of actual M&A transaction experience (neither is gonna close IMHO)
