We are starting an investment fund and are trying to come up with a
professional and meaningful name for it.  The investment manager's
philosophy is one of value investing, no internet, no day trading.  He
believes in diligent scrutiny, disciplined thought and value
investing.  He also follows the investment teachings of Graham and
Dodd (if that is helpful).

Some key concepts of the investment philosophy we have thought of so far are:
~~One step ahead
~~Intrinsic Value
~~Conservative, protecting type fund that still provides high returns
based on sound fundamental security analysis
~~Seeing value, opportunities and trends in investments and the market
~~Study and keen understanding of business and where they are going

Examples of name structures might include (but are not limited to):
_________ Asset Management
_________ Capital Management
_________ Fund

While something related to these concepts or this name structure would
be good, we would consider any sharp, professional sounding names that
very important).  Please provide as lengthy list as you can, perhaps
with your favorites highlighted, and feel free to ask for any
clarification needed.

We will offer a generous tip for truly exceptional results!
There is no answer at this time.

here are some ..
1)Straight Arrow ( as in regarded as being extremely conventional)
2)Blue-ribbon (honor given for excellence)
3)Banyan tree ( hisoric attachment to wisdom, Buddha got enlightned
under a banyan tree)
4)Brahmin ( this is the most perfect name for the fund you r planning
to start..conservative, extremely intelligent,  bluestocking, pundit,
scholar, etc...but I dont know how popular the term is in America..I
am based in Singapore))
5)true-blue (  hard-working, old faithful, law-abiding, ethical, fair, forthright)
6)Lodestar ( leader,  genius, guiding spirit, guru, nonesuch, ideal..)
7)Viceroy ( people's choice, front, expert, minister, ambassador
8) Spire ( an area close to the top, that tappers upwards, suits well
for the vision)
9) beau ideal ( if are keen to use a french word..another fit word..)

Sir, let me know if it goes well or what else you are looking for.. My
choice is Brahmin..
thank you

Dear Happy

Very simple. How about

The Diligence Fund

Diligent Asset Management
(but I don't like the intials)

Sensible Asset Management
(SAM - actually sounds friendly and is reminiscent of Good Neighbor Sam)

Definitely not 
Artful Dodd-ger

But Artful Dodd Capital Management

Just some thoughts

And yes, I Googled the names to see if they were in use.
