Intelligent Commodity Investing

Description:    "In recent years, commodity investing has come of age. But the analytical underpinnings of the
                market are still less well understood than those of markets in other asset classes. Till and Eagleeye
                have, in this collection, gone a long way towards filling that gap, and in an easily comprehensible
                style. It will be essential reading for commodity investors, or would-be investors, everywhere."
                Sir Howard Davies, Director, London School of Economics and Political Science; and Former
                Chairman of the Financial Services Authority (UK)

                "From lasting principles in commodities investing to recent trends and leading edge techniques, this
                book covers a full range of concepts that are critical for anyone investing in these markets. At once
                comprehensive and relevant to the current environment, this book offers important information to
                both the experienced commodities practitioner as well as those simply interested in learning more
                about these increasingly important markets."
                Mr. David Kuenzi, Head of Risk Management and Quantitative Research, Glenwood Capital
                Investments, LLC; A member of the Man Group

                “This book is a service to our industry.”
                Robert J. Greer, Senior VP, Real Return Product Manager, PIMCO

                As commodities move into the realm of respectable investments and with research continually
                demonstrating their attractiveness in an overall portfolio, this book provides institutional investors
                with a framework for intelligent commodity investing.
