Nakamura: the world’s deadliest hedge fund
December 1, 2011 § 1 Comment
received a number of calls and messages in the last few days asking me to explain the significance of Nakamura. “I haven’t heard of it,” “Who is this?” “Is it a bird?”
Well I very much doubt anyone should have heard of Nakamura Corps. They aren’t to be found on any website, or company directory. They never do any press. In the highly secretive world of hedge funds Nakamura is the most secretive and mysterious of all.
To tell you the truth I really don’t know too much about them myself. Once in a while a rumour goes around the markets following a massive correction, an unexplained takeover or a gigantic profit opportunity– “it was Nakamura”. Occasionally I’ve heard senior traders talk about the time they crossed swords with Nakamura and lost. Or failed hedge funders whisper how they were ruined by a Nakamura trader.
They are the elite of the elite. The deadliest of the deadly. And I have a meeting with them tomorrow.
