Summary

Due to the various differences between metal exchanges (LME and Comex) and trading structures within the copper market, arbitrage opportunities are able to be exploited.

Investment Strategy

Through both our trading experience and market relationships with various counterparties, we have been able to access a niche capacity constrained trade that larger players are unable to participate in. In this very traditional hedge fund trade, copper in London will either price at a premium or at a discount to the copper contract traded in New York. This allows sophisticated participants to access the 'location arbitrage' opportunity. The strategy trades in futures and forward contracts only.

Risk Management

PORTFOLIO LEVEL: PMs manage the risk on a trade by trade basis and on a portfolio level within the agreed Risk Guidelines. RISK MANAGEMENT LEVEL: Our Risk Manager actively monitors the risk of the entire trading portfolios and intervenes if a breach occurs. MANAGEMENT LEVEL: Management monitors concentration risks, drawdown and volatility. RISK SYSTEM: Bespoke risk system in place to monitor real-time risk
