Today’s pod is all about word play playing into alternative investment. How does Jam Croissant relate to Cem Karsan? What about Vanna Charm and options definitions? Or the forever popular “there’s no such thing as a free lunch” evolving to “nothing is ever risk free”? To get together the definitions, explanations, and educated facts on all these nuances, we have FinTwit VIP & Founder and Senior Managing Partner of Aegea Capital Management, Cem Karsan. On top of alternative investment word witticism we’re also talking with Cem about how to actually pronounce Cem Karsan starting out as a market maker, Hagia Sophia, vanna informing trend following, buying options, twitter debates, Cem’s favorite jam & croissant, active to passive moves, the election pushing October, November, and December higher, how nothing is ever risk free, winner takes all mentality for market makers, market down/vol down market up/vol up, volatility retail call buying growth versus value, and all of the Greek/options definitions.
