From agricultural products to natural gas, changes in the weather play a key role in determining the prices of commodities. We asked: What if we could forecast those changes better than anyone else?
Over the past five years, our Commodities strategy has assembled a team of PhD-level atmospheric scientists who understand and can predict signals generated from weather phenomena, from windstorms that last two days to El Nino events that last a season. Working in tandem with a team of High-Performance Computing specialists, they’ve built a differentiated applied research operation.
Today, they help transform terabytes of data a day into actionable forecasts, communicating weather-driven commercial opportunities and risks to our investment teams. Their tools and proprietary weather models provide answers to research queries in a fast, flexible manner. Weather analytics are now embedded in investment decisions, representing a unique depth of capability.
Across all major asset classes and geographies, we have a singular focus: delivering industry-leading returns.
