Convexity lockups to expire; fund raising money.


Convexity Capital Management, the firm run by former Harvard Endowment chief Jack Meyer, is raising capital - at a time when the fund's initial lockup is set to expire. Convexity measures itself against benchmarks and last year returned 4.51% above them, net of fees. On an absolute return basis, it lost 6% during the year, ending with a net asset value of $8.56 billion.
