Galtere Inc. was founded in 1997 by Renee Haugerud, a commodity trading veteran of over 30 years. Galtere’s flagship strategy distinguishes itself from pure commodity strategies and from traditional global macro strategies by blending elements of both. By looking through the commodity lens, Galtere approaches markets from a distinctive standpoint, and are keenly aware of how commodity fundamentals can influence other asset classes. Combining the discretionary theme-based investment selection with Galtere’s proprietary technical process for pricing and risk management, the returns have a very low correlation to most asset classes while offering low volatility.

The Galtere philosophy is particularly forward-looking – an important component of the “art” of trading – while incorporating proper historical perspective, or the “science” of trading. We feel that this hybrid view of global opportunities is an integral part of our continual success as an investment manager.

Headquartered in St. Thomas, VI, the firm also has an office in New York and maintains a presence in the Midwest, from which we are able to monitor physical production across key agricultural markets. The Galtere Research And Development Center in Minnesota is available to provide interested parties with a tangible knowledge of how our ideas are sourced, tested, and developed.
