Tritone Capital Management has just launched its first offering, the TCM Global Strategy Fund, a global commodities fund.
The fund, which is managed by Jeffrey Neufeld, is a long/short vehicle that invests in commodities futures based on the components of the Rogers International Commodity Index, options on commodities and commodity-related equity securities.
"We believe that an actively managed, globally diverse portfolio can adjust and grow with the changing commodities markets, particularly the increased demand for energy and consumables," said Neufeld. "Our top-down approach draws upon global macroeconomic, fundamental, and technical analysis to identify trading opportunities, with the ultimate goals of augmenting returns, preserving capital and reducing risk."
Neufeld recently served as a consultant for Bank of America’s globalderivatives business and technology initiatives. Prior to that, he was an assistant vice president with Northern Trust Global Investments, where
he worked in securities lending, quantitative equity, active and high-yield fixed income and derivatives.
The minimum investment in the new fund $100,000, and fees are 2% for management and 20% performance.
