About Us

It began in 2014 when a banker with a wealth management background bumped into a Quant at a coffee shop in Dubai. After much perseverance and applying our experiences earned from working in London, successful trading models started to take shape near the latter half of 2015. We knew we had something great, so after a year of using some of the models under an advisory platform, Chronos Futures Limited was founded to incubate some of the models for the sole purpose of managing funds of high net worth (HNW) or qualified eligible participant (QEP). The strategies are quantitative-based and manually executed that complements many other trading models out there by robustness. Inspired by RenTech’s rumoured focus on price curves and cycles, we initiated a blend of Machine learning and sentiment analysis to our models where context provides a strategic edge. Standing on the shoulder of giants, our story unfolds everyday with constant research to keep up with the ever-changing market regimes.

We are currently building track record and not open for client investments.


Our investment style mainly focuses on commodities with greater than average weight on Energies or high beta Markets. The duration of our positions can extend from 4 days to 4 weeks.
