Our Investment Management Approach
Our hedge fund investment management relies on a process of fundamental research to deploy discretionary themes using exchange-cleared futures and options in the wholesale electricity, natural gas, emissions, and related markets to produce uncorrelated alpha.Contact us
Our Investment Philosophy
The dynamic nature of power and energy markets can provide opportunities to capture alpha through directional, relative value, and volatility term structures. As a nimble group of seasoned hedge fund investment managers, the objective of the firm is to generate superior returns that are uncorrelated to traditional and alternative asset classes.
Managing Risk While Embracing Volatility
Power is unique among commodities in that it cannot be meaningfully stored, and the physical nature of power dispatch requires that supply must equal demand in real time. The result is inherent volatility, and our strategy requires respectful comfort with this characteristic.
A portfolio consisting of diversifying ideas across uncoupled regionalized markets overlaid with a policy requiring drawdown-based reductions in risk capital is designed to opportunistically capture the upside and limit the downside volatilities. Risk management is the backbone to our track record of more than a decade.
Exhaustive Market Research for Insightful Conclusions
The e360 Power research process is a constantly spinning flywheel. Fundamental research is where it all begins. It consists of a formal process around where we poke and pry data to develop and validate ideas.
The constant re-evaluation and stress testing of the assumptions that underpin ideas is present throughout both the research and investment process. The thematic ideas that ultimately go into the portfolio are generated from studying fundamental data through a series of third-party subscriptions, data processing and internal proprietary modeling.
Navigating the Energy Transition through Power, NG, & Emissions Markets
The future is electrifying. We are plugging in more devices than ever, and connectivity is increasingly becoming the fabric of daily life. As we embark on the Energy Transition, we are rapidly changing the way we consume and produce electricity.
EVs, smart devices, cloud computing, and crypto mining are finding more mainstream popularity. These forms of productivity have meaningful implications in shaping electricity demand. The supply of electricity is also shifting to sources with cleaner inputs. As coal plants are retiring at a swift pace, renewables such as wind and solar farms are being called to action to provide replacement power. Differing dispatch characteristics and no clear alignment between older generating facilities going offline and new ones coming online is producing volatility across US power markets. The experience our portfolio managers bring to these markets is unparalleled.

Our Investment & Trading Process
The strategy has a discretionary fundamental approach to trading Power, Natural Gas, Emissions, and related products in the form of futures and options with directional, relative value, and volatility expressions. The power focus is specific to North America, while inputs into wholesale electricity price formation, such as natural gas and emissions, is global in nature. At any given time, we have several themes in our portfolio with holding periods that average six months but at times extend even longer. Technical factors, including flow, marketing activity and hedging programs, are always considered as part of the timing and sizing of these ideas, however themes remain always fundamental in nature.
The thematic ideas that ultimately go into the portfolio are generated from studying fundamental data through a series of third-party subscriptions, data processing and internal proprietary modelling. We typically start with the analysis of the fuel markets with a strong emphasis in NG.
Sizing & Timing
Risk implications at trade and portfolio levels are at the center of the sizing of any trade ideas. With Open Interest, VAR and ETL limitations in mind, we look to understand what size position determines the level of risk from both perspectives. Entry and exit points rely on technical and flow analysis.
Full connectivity with external redundancy allows us to access the exchanges that we trade. A series of products that we trade can only be found at select voice brokerage houses. Relationships with brokers, that in some cases date back 20 years, are instrumental in our ability to find best prices and execute efficiently.
Monitoring & Adjusting
Constant re-evaluation of ideas challenges our positions. Even if things progress as expected, we ask ourselves: what can go wrong? Are there reasons to change our view? Do the targets need to be rethought? Is the trade even better than we first imagined? Managing gamma plays a big role here as well.
When initial exit targets, contract settlement, liquidations roll-off, or option expiration are met, our trading themes complete their cycle. These cycles tend to be rather seasonal. Trades that do not work are expected to be exited before then.
Qualified investors can find our performance at one of many hedge fund and alternative investment databases.
