The departure follows on from that of Quindell chairman Rob Terry yesterday and the resignation of broker Canaccord Genuity last month.
A Cenkos spokesperson told City A.M. that Bryant’s departure had “nothing to do with Quindell” and that the timing was purely “coincidental”.
Bryant would have seen his blood pressure rise a notch or two while covering the Quindell account.
The Hampshire-based company has lost more than £2bn in market value in a matter of months.
Bryant recently attempted to explain Terry’s now-infamous share transfer agreement.
Bryant said: “All three directors have therefore simply increased their shareholdings [and have not sold or ‘cashed-out’ any stock].” It subsequently emerged they had.
