Maleeha Bengali is CEO of MB Commodities Capital, based in London. In the past two decades, she has worked as a portfolio manager and hedge fund manager for UBS, Goldman Sachs, and Merill Lynch. She began contributing to TheStreet's Real Money in 2018, where she specializes in commodities coverage.
Bengali focuses on using both top-down macro and bottom-up fundamental relative value analysis applying cross-asset arbitrage techniques to capitalize on the relative mispricings evident in these asset classes. She has generated a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of ~ 10% using systematic delta neutral investment trading strategies; minimizing market and directional risk while maximizing returns, focusing on alpha generation.
When Bengali isn’t covering global financial topics, she can be found on the tennis court, biking, or listening to EDM music.
