Ex-Citadel Natural Gas Investor Opens New Hedge Fund

Reuters reported: An investor who previously helped oversee U.S. natural gas trading at Citadel has set up his own hedge fund, a person familiar with the plans said on Monday. Ron Ozer, who worked as a portfolio manager and co-head of U.S. natural gas trading at Citadel, has launched Statar Capital LLC to focus on natural gas trades. He worked at Citadel, which currently manages $30 billion, from July 2015 to April 2017. Ozer’s New York-based fund has raised roughly $140 million in assets from family offices and institutional clients, the person who was not authorized to speak publicly about the private fund’s plans said. A spokesman for Statar declined to comment. Statar is starting to trade at a time the United States is awash in natural gas and prices are not expected to rise any time soon. Other energy trading funds have closed this year amid shrinking profits and market volatility, including Houston- based Velite Capital, which was once one of the mostprofitable U.S. natural gas trading shops but began winding down operations two months ago.
