FUNDS: ANRO

Full Name ISIN
ANGSANA NATURAL RUBBER OPP FUND I-CLASS B SGXZ10812956
Summary Of ANRO

The natural rubber sector offers a unique opportunity for investors to participate in a secular repricing of this important and irreplaceable commodity. Several years of under investment have taken their toll on potential upstream supply, whilst consumption patterns have emerged stronger from two challenging events: DieselGate (2016 to 2019, which ultimately accelerated the mobility revolution: EV’s, AI etc) and Covid-19 (2020, safe personal mobility, gloves, PPE, QEx, etc). The gestation period for rubber trees remains long: 6 years to first tapping, with another 2 years before the tree produces a commercially viable yield.

Angsana Natural Rubber Opportunities Fund (“ANRO”) is incorporated in Singapore as a Variable Capital Company (“VCC”). ANRO is currently one of the only natural rubber hedge funds in existence.

ANRO’s investment strategy targets absolute returns with an asymmetric upside by positioning in natural rubber futures. Our investment decisions are based on proprietary supply and demand models, rigorous macro-economic analysis and real-time physical market information. While we are uniquely focussed on natural rubber, we continuously reference natural rubber prices within the global commodity complex to understand fund flows and identify pricing signals that might originate outside of our sector. ANRO is committed to a risk-averse allocation model, and has established a strict risk framework that is overseen by an external and independent investment committee.
