    hi everybody

    I am launching a hedge fund , and struggling to find a name

    If anyone could give me some help

    It is a long and short equity hedge fund, based on global stocks.

    The specificity is a long convexity option strategy (long medium term low delta option to protect the fund from rare events and to benefit from them : crash, buyout etc...)

    Intensive intraday trading is financing these long option positions.

    The name should make you think about trading, volatility, liquidity, security, innovation.

    Thanks to everybody

  4. What about <b>Cambrure Capital</b> - it says you are french... something of a french name might go better than a technical term (but in this case, it still mean convexity but in french) . Most of the best funds have no terminology in their names. Only references to places, things, states of mind, etc.... avoid terminology unless you want to be known as a provider of a data service or some outsourced technology provider for the hedge fund industry.

    Lots of funds are called after a street or a place. Just pick your favourite.

    Or after founders. If you are not comfortable with your name sticking out you can make an acronym from the initials.
