The Volcker Rule is driving talented traders to leave large, well-known Wall Street investment banks for hedge funds, Reservoir Capital founder Daniel Stern said at the Skybridge Alternatives (a.k.a., SALT) investor summit.

"I get a call a day from head-hunters looking to place talent," he said.

The Volcker Rule, part of the Dodd-Frank financial reforms, limits proprietary trading by investment banks.

"The best talent is coming to market within the next year," Stern said.
