Mr. Bingham has worked for world class firms such as Chicago Research & Trading, HSBC Securities and Prudential Securities.

He designed and launched the ABSR Rotation Rebalanced Commodity Index, a best in class liquid altBeta index with a proprietary roll and seasonal biased weighting methodology that has shown to produce superior risk adjusted commodity returns. ABSR is now employing its scientific approach to markets to provide a platform to assist commodity producers, transformation agents, and purchasers with their commodity marketing efforts.
