Institutional investment manager authoring on a variety of topics that pique my interest, and could further discourse in this online community. I hold an MBA from the University of Chicago, and have earned the CFA designation.
My articles may contain statements and projections that are forward-looking in nature, and therefore inherently subject to numerous risks, uncertainties and assumptions. While my articles focus on generating long-term risk-adjusted returns, investment decisions necessarily involve the risk of loss of principal. Individual investor circumstances vary significantly, and information gleaned from my articles should be applied to your own unique investment situation, objectives, risk tolerance, and investment horizon.

His unique ability to forecast both short and longer range weather trends, with a special emphasis in interpreting market psychology and major market moves in grains, softs and the energy markets, has made him a global industry leader in commodities. Mr. Roemer brings his experience to the ETF arena, in which he will make some occasional recommendations on how weather and global climate may impact such markets as corn, soybeans, wheat, natural gas, cotton, sugar, coffee and even the economy.
