Last year before leaving the firm, David Silbert had helped build Deutsche into one of the largest commodities players in banking.  Shortly after

leaving  the German lender lightened their exposure in the commodities market due to tougher regulations imposed on proprietary trading.

There has also been an adjustment in the way Hedge funds operate, in which they have also reduced exposure to commodities due to low returns.

“We will be different from a hedge fund. Our model won’t be very much different from trading companies, which have been generally good at acquiring assets,” said Silbert.

“But we will be fairly risk averse. There will be no emphasis on proprietary trading,” he added.
