In this episode, I talk with Tim Pickering. Tim is the founder, President and CIO of Auspice.
Auspice Capital Advisors is a quantitative investment specialist focused on Alpha and Enhanced Beta managed futures and commodity strategies. Auspice specializes in applying innovative rules-based investment strategies across a broad range of commodity and financial markets.
Prior to forming Auspice, Tim was VP of Trading at Shell (North America). He began his career at TD Securities (Toronto) in their elite trading development program ultimately holding the Senior PM position for the Energy Derivatives portfolio. Outside of Auspice, Tim has been involved in grain farming in Western Canada. Through the founding of Auspice, Tim ties together a career in commodity and financial risk and portfolio management that has spanned institutional experience along with entrepreneurial vision.
Tim and I talk about his history as an institutional energy trader and how that lead him to want to start his own entrepreneurial venture. We touch on where inflation manifests itself and how do you make sure you are there. We also discuss how to deal with open profits within a trend system.
I hope you enjoy this conversation with Tim as much as I did...
