Trading Natural Gas in Worldwide Markets to Secure Uncorrelated Returns

The e360 hedge fund has been a large participant in the global natural gas market since 2009.

Our three traders have a combined 70 years of experience in managing natural gas portfolios. Because this market is niche and difficult-to-access, experts in the industry are rare. Three experts at the same hedge fund is practically unheard of. With such expertise along with a portfolio entirely composed of energy and power assets, e360 Power is uniquely poised to capitalize on the Energy Transition and deliver uncorrelated returns.

Unique Characteristics of the Natural Gas Market

Pipelines Connect Region to Region

Production of natural gas primarily takes place in Texas (24%), Pennsylvania (21%), and Louisiana (10%). From there, the gas is distributed throughout the country by a vast network of pipelines.

Bottlenecks Between Supply and Demand

Natural gas production cannot quickly and flexibly respond to changes in demand, often leaving an imbalance between supply and demand that we try to capitalize on.

Advent of Shale Gas

Prior to the development of shale gas production, the United States was a growing natural gas importer. The production of shale gas, through horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, has made the U.S. the world’s largest natural gas producer.

Cleaner Fossil Fuel

Combustion of natural gas emits half the carbon dioxide as coal and 30% less than oil. Gas matches the other fossil fuels in reliability, but does so without the same environmental detriment.

Instruments & Focus

The e360 Power portfolio consists only of exchange-cleared contracts. We do not trade over-the-counter contracts, so we minimize counterparty risks and eliminate internal evaluation methods. We primarily trade futures and options on futures which expire in 24 months, however, we are capable of going out a full 4 calendar years.

LNG Market

LNG, or liquified natural gas, is a natural gas that has been cooled to a liquid state for shipping and storage. This liquefaction process makes it possible to transport natural gas to places where pipelines do not reach. Most LNG is transported by LNG carrier ships, and then regasified at import terminals. The expansion of LNG over the past 10 years has united natural gas markets globally.
