City boss quits firm after sexual misconduct claims

A City financier is leaving the company he founded after sexual harassment allegations.

Crispin Odey’s departure from Odey Asset Management follows a Financial Times report that 13 women accused him of sexual harassment or assault over 25 years.

Mr Odey strenuously denies the claims and told the paper they were “rubbish”.

In a statement the hedge fund said it took “all allegations of misconduct extremely seriously”.

For more than three decades Mr Odey had been at the helm of the hedge fund he founded in 1991 – at its peak the firm managed more than £10bn worth of investments.
