ARION

Arion Investment Management Limited is a commodity focused investment management company based in London. The company is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (registered no. 742037).

We differentiate ourselves by focussing on what we do best – investing in the commodity space. Whether it be through our funds, or bespoke niche client led services, Arion Investment Management prides itself on its ability to successfully navigate the commodities arena.


Approach

The bulk of our expertise is based around our ability to successfully navigate, and provide access to, uncorrelated, niche and often capacity constrained opportunities within the commodity sector. Where our advantage lies, is our ability to understand the opportunity, to structure the trade in a way to take advantage of the market inefficiency, and to risk manage the position through the process.

Niche Strategies

The opportunity to enter into specialised and often capacity constrained markets to deliver superior risk-adjusted returns.

Expertise

Decades of experience, specifically within commodity markets.

Accountability

Everything we do is highly visible and liquid with our own goals aligned to that of our clients.

Arion offers bespoke solutions via funds and managed accounts to investors that require a particular strategy and/or particular levels of risk within the commodity space.
