Share Article

Kettera Strategies LLC, which operates Hydra, the leading managed account marketplace for macro, commodities and liquid equity hedge fund strategies, today announced that Aquantum GmbH has launched its systematic, energy-only, relative value strategy through the Hydra marketplace.

Aquantum was founded in 2008, by industry veterans including Thomas Morrow, who was formerly a Senior Scientist at Winton Capital. Kettera’s Hydra marketplace will offer Aquantum’s ACS Energies Strategy, which is focused solely on energy markets.

“We are excited about our relationship with Kettera and its Hydra marketplace. After several years of live trading, this connection with Hydra completes the range of Aquantum wrappers for a global expansion of our successful ACS Energies Program,” said Thomas Morrow.

“We’re already sensing a great deal of interest in ACS Energies,” said Jon Stein, Kettera CEO. “The strategy makes Aquantum a contender in the energy space and should open new doors for them.”

The on-boarding of the ACS Energies Program is another instance of the expansion of Hydra’s marketplace, which distinguishes itself in the macro/managed futures space by providing investors with daily transparency, intra-month liquidity and notional funding capabilities.
