Investment Approach

July 2015 – Tellurian’s CEO Jean-Marc Bonnefous talks to Risk Magazine about recent market trends

“TAKE CALCULATED RISKS, THAT IS QUITE DIFFERENT FROM BEING RASH”
(Gen. George S. Patton)

The Tellurian Investment Approach in commodities is based on a thorough fundamental analysis of the various commodity markets. The objective is to deliver consistent positive returns with limited downside risk. When constructing the portfolio the manager identifies macro-economic themes as well as specific structural industry themes that can impact commodity price behaviour. There is a very strong risk management process in place to limit downside risk.

Trading decisions are discretionary and are based on fundamental research; supply/demand, production capacity and macro-economic factors supported by technical and analytical signals. Strategies must conform to the following rules: Liquidity,Transparency, Moderate leverage and Attractive risk adjusted return.

We have a clearly defined investment process; a fully integrated and scalable commodity risk system and a strong focus on operations and controls.

In the Technology space Tellurian Capital has developed a proven expertise in identifying early stage high growth companies in sectors such as distributed ledger technology (Blockchain), cybersecurity and behavioural analytics.
