Melanion Capital recognised as JEI by French ministry of R&D
Melanion Capital has been granted Innovative Startup Venture (Jeune Enterprise Innovante) status by the French ministry of Research and Development.
Known by the acroynme JEI, the status is based on a number of contributing factors, including:
– The Company’s competence and expertise in a new and challenging asset class: Dividend Futures
– Melanion’s R&D work, building models for forecasting dividends, dividend volatility and dividend term structure
– Portfolio management and the development of proprietary risk management tools for Dividend Futures investment
– Development of pricing models for other dividend derivatives.
Melanion Capital recently became the first alternative investment fund manager specialising in dividend futures to obtain authorisation from the French markets regulator AMF.
Jad Comair, founder and CIO, said: “This formal recognition [JEI] validates the emphasis placed on research by the Melanion team who focus on innovation which we have identified as an essential pillar for growth.”
“We would like to extend our gratitude to the French ministry of R&D for this token of approval and support which acknowledges Melanion Capital’s unique business model and further validates our cutting-edge expertise in the Dividend Futures market.”
