This Is Why Kilimanjaro Is the Right Strategy for You
Kilimanjaro takes advantage of price dislocations in over 30 different commodities across Agriculture, Energy and Metals. Commodity prices are driven by supply and demand.
For example, when supply of a commodity is low, prices will increase. Likewise, increased demand for a commodity will increase its price.
Kilimanjaro’s proprietary algorithms look for patterns in commodity markets to take advantage of this price behaviour. An example is Corn, which is used in animal feed. If there is a drought and a large crop gets destroyed, corn prices will start to rise.
They will rise until one of two things happen:
- A new supply is found - existing inventory or overseas imports OR
- There’s reduced demand as different grains can be substituted for corn in animal feed
Kilimanjaro seeks to profit from both rising and falling markets. Appropriate risk controls are always put in place to protect capital and to diversify sources of returns.

In 2019 Joel joined Cazadores Investments as a Portfolio Manager focusing on systematic commodity strategies.
“If you invest in the same thing that you’ve got you just end up doubling down on your risk. If you look after the risk, the returns will follow.”
