About Us    

Jaguar Investments was incorporated in the UK in March 2002 by Colin O’Neill and Tony Coote and today consists of a team of commodity specialists. It is a team built on trust and experience and it is a team that shares a common goal of excellence in the field of commodity investments. The three portfolio managers have over 85 years combined commodity trading experience and at Jaguar this experience is married to extensive proprietary databases and on-going research initiatives encompassing the changing world and role of commodities.

Colin and Tony started working and trading together in the commodity markets in the mid 1980s and they have worked as a team ever since. Throughout their careers they have managed trading teams, been responsible for global risk management and have developed commodity businesses within large financial institutions. They have devised commodity products, including baskets, warrants and their own proprietary systematic methodologies. They have extensive experience of OTC instruments, and exchange traded commodity futures and options.

Jagjit Manhas

Portfolio Manager

Jagjit Manhas graduated from Bournemouth University in 2005 with a first class (Honours) Bachelors of Science degree in Software Engineering. His final dissertation was centred on Artificial Intelligence.

Jagjit began his career as a software engineer and worked for multi-national companies, including Sony Ericsson, Sony and EDS (eventually acquired by Hewlett Packard). Jagjit had always maintained a keen interest in financial markets and in 2008 decided to switch across to the financial sector, joining Oak Capital Management. Having built an automated market making model he transitioned into a quantitative trader role, developing, testing and executing alpha generating quantitative strategies in the energy futures space. Throughout this time he was constantly evolving his models and creating new trade opportunities using artificial intelligence methods and incorporating genetic programming. In the depths of the financial crisis, Oak Capital closed in 2011. Jagjit retained complete ownership of all aspects of the models he developed, and having briefly joined a couple of smaller brokerage houses, Jagjit decided to open his models to external investors.

 

Jagjit joined Jaguar Investments in 2015.

 

    Strategy    

The AEGIR Strategy

Today the company offers an energy-based investment strategy which encompasses our core values and trading philosophy – namely a focus on absolute risk-adjusted returns. We understand perfectly well that all investment strategies will face unhelpful market conditions from time to time and that a key ingredient to investment management success over the medium-long term is a risk management structure that focuses on containing downside in such markets

AEGIR: Myth, Norse; a sea-jӧtunn associated with the ocean

The AEGIR Strategy is a fully systematic strategy, focusing on relative value/arbitrage opportunities in exchange-traded energy markets.

It is significantly more flexible than standardised long-only instruments since it has the ability to run long/short futures and seize market opportunities as they arise. All trading is executed and cleared across recognised exchanges and there is no OTC exposure. Instruments traded include exchange-traded futures, forwards and options.

There is no outright short option exposure.
