The “Program” (Multi Manager) launched in January 2008, initially trading proprietary assets until April 2008 when it began trading client funds. The “Program” was traded at Atlantic Capital Advisors from inception until February 2014. In April 2014 Nicholas Gentile established NickJen Capital Management and renamed the program the Natural Resource Program - NRD-1.
The NRD-1 is a Natural Resource, commodity only program using both fundamental and technical analysis, with the ultimate trading decisions based on fundamentals. 70% of the portfolio strategy focuses on the Agricultural and Soft markets and the remaining balance is composed of the Energy, Meat and Metal sectors.
Trading decisions are developed through highly extensive, statistically based analysis, review of supply and demand conditions, inventory levels, weather developments and forecasts and economic trends and reports. This in conjunction with the managers in depth knowledge of markets and physical commodity trading experience is also strengthened by a vast network of industry contacts developed over 25 plus years.
