Things You Get To Do When You’re A Hedge Fund Manager Of Moderate Success

Hire the Dallas Cowboy cheerleaders to stand behind your desk and do a little dance every time you put on a trade. Host midget-themed pool parties. Hunt and embalm endangered species. Have sausages named after you.

Celebrity endorsement works, at least if the celebrity involved is a glamorous sportsman like Usain Bolt, who yesterday announced the biggest deal ever, to help Puma flog its pumps and T-shirts. But can you really imagine Crispin Odey, the permanently pin-striped hedge fund guru, as a brand ambassador? Well, he is. The new branch of the Union Market organic grocery store in Fulham – a company that is run by Odey’s pal Tony Bromovsky, and which the fund manager has invested in – has added an “Odey Sausage” to its range, made from prime Middle White rare breed pork.

    It took you thirty seconds to read that? I’d think someone who brings such glaring insight to the table (for example, the fact that the dead of August is historically a slow news time) could’ve gotten through it a bit quicker than that.

    Not that Wood’s comment wasn’t dickish, but 30 seconds seems like a reasonable rate at which to read the above post.
