We are commodity investors, specialising in relative value strategies. We blend fundamental and quantitative expertise to produce returns which have low correlations to major market indices.

 

But we are different to other commodity investors.

 

We offer a unique blend of hands-on commodity experts, fundamental analysts and quantitative specialists, delivering uncorrelated alpha to you across four fund vehicles. Our trading strategies are built on a deep, practical understanding of the physical commodity markets from years supporting and participating in all sides of the sector.

HERITAGE

Heritage

Our founding investment team have worked together for almost twenty years. Firstly they established the commodity desk at an investment bank, before spinning out their successful relative value investment strategy to offer their uncorrelated returns to investors through a fund structure. Now, PolarStar Management is a leading agricultural commodities fund manager with four investable products and a team of eleven. Throughout this period of sustained growth, the firm has remained true to its founding principles: 

1.) Absolute alpha: Fund performance must be independent of market direction;
2.) Enhanced diversification: Deliver returns that are uncorrelated to CTAs, hedge funds, major equity & commodity market indices; &
3.) Risk first approach: Structure trades so that losses are limited.

We blend complementary skills and techniques to deliver superior returns

Team

Team

In our core markets, trading opportunities arise from intrinsic market imbalances, but are not easy to discover or trade profitably. By combining experienced physical and derivative commodity traders and financers, with superior quantitative specialists, we have built an investment team and processes optimised to make the most of these opportunities for our investors. We have embedded this team within a highly collaborative environment, supported by an exceptional team with experience in risk management, hedge fund operations, accounting and fund administration.
