Rokos Capital Management hired former Brevan Howard portfolio manager Luke Sadrian as an investment officer and partner as part of a commodities push.
Rokos has various product lines within its core portfolio, including equities and rates. A Rokos spokesperson told Financial News Sadrian will establish a metals line for the firm.
“Luke will be working closely with Rokos’s energy vertical team — an expansion within commodities from only energy at the moment to energy and metals,” the spokesperson said.
2022 has been a bumper year for Rokos. The hedge fund gained 44% through October, according to a Bloomberg report.
