Commodities

We have built a team with many years of commodities trading and investment experience and a deep understanding of global commodities markets.

We offer actively managed strategies that invest in a diverse global portfolio of commodities to access the capital growth, portfolio diversification and inflation protection benefits offered by this asset class. We aim to exploit a broad range of market opportunities, utilising a research driven approach and active asset allocation between different commodity markets and the commodity term structures.

We believe that commodity investment will continue to grow and we are confident that our active management strategy combined with the team’s expertise, will enable us to add value and capture diversification benefits as the market continues to evolve.
