From the Wall Street Journal:
The former chief executive of MF Global Holdings Ltd. has abruptly left his job at the New York City comptroller's office.
Kevin Davis started work in September as head of commodities in the comptroller's Bureau of Asset Management.
His hiring had drawn criticism from stakeholders in the city's pension system. MF Global was sued by four public pension systems outside New York. Davis left the company in 2008 after it lost more than 90 percent of its market value.
A spokesman for Comptroller John Liu tells The Wall Street Journal it was Davis' personal decision to resign on Wednesday.
Chief Investment Officer Larry Schloss will assume his responsibilities.
Davis did not return a request for comment.
