Trading & Portfolio Management

Jehan graduated from London Guildhall University with an Honors degree in Economics in 2000.

For the past 15 years he has worked as an Analyst, Trader and Portfolio Manager for various Investment Banks and Proprietary Trading desks in both Europe and Asia.

He started his career at a private Family Office in South Africa gaining exposure to developing and managing relationships with high net worth individuals, family offices and foundations.

He then went on to work for Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein in London on the Equity Derivatives desk where he gained experience across a host of trading strategies and asset classes.

Subsequent to this he has held positions at Citi, Standard Chartered and Straumur Investment Banks until he left the industry and moved to Singapore to start his own boutique physical commodity trading and research firm. His strategy focuses on using both top down macro and bottom up fundamental relative value analysis applying cross asset arbitrage techniques to capitalise on mispricings.

He believes in not only immersing himself in the macro economic data but also engaging in a grass roots understanding of the economies and asset classes he trades.
