In October 2015, Credit Suisse Group AG Chief Executive Officer Tidjane Thiam and the head of its markets unit, Timothy O’Hara, laid out their vision for a business they said would be key to overhauling one of the world’s biggest investment banks. “Credit Suisse has consistently been a top-three trader of global stocks since 2010,” O’Hara, a 27-year veteran of the bank, told investors who had gathered in London.
Ahmet Arinc, the former head of foreign exchange and emerging-market debt trading at Deutsche Bank AG, is preparing to start his own hedge fund with at least $100 million in initial capital, according to two people with knowledge of the matter. Arinc is setting up Cirera Capital Ltd. in London, which is expected to start betting on macroeconomic trends across emerging markets in the first quarter of next year, the people said, asking not to be identified because the information is private.
BlueCrest Capital Management LLP, the investment firm run by billionaire Michael Platt, is investing $300 million in a new hedge fund set up by Maxime Kahn, the former head of proprietary trading at Societe Generale SA. Kahn’s Paris-based fund, 111 Capital, will start trading with the money in August or September and invest in stocks and derivatives, he said in an interview. He won’t begin looking for other outside investors for at least 18 months, he said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
