Profile summary

Zafiro Capital Commodities Trading Fund is a Cayman Islands fund, which launched on 3rd November 2014.

Research is fundamental to the Investment Manager in identifying the right trades to make, and to that end we use the best external data and research, provided by a multitude of industry leaders such as Bloomberg, Reuters, Energy Aspects, and Lanworth. Furthermore, we have enlisted the services of two independent fund directors in the Cayma
