Five commodity specialists from JPMorgan Chase and BNP Paribas are leaving London to start Four Elements Capital Management in Singapore.

The team is led by Lionel Semonin, previously a managing director for BNP’s global commodity investor group. Prior to the French bank, Semonin spent 10 years at JPMorgan Chase. He is joined by Bertrand Egsbaek, Leila Kuhlenthal, Marion Lefevre and Lei Shen.
 
The new hedge fund is a specialized commodity research shop that applies quantitative methods of processing both fundamental and market data to generate alpha across and within the different commodity sectors. Four Elements will also have a regional office in London.
