About Mohit Arora

Roles and Responsibilities

Mohit leads the Risk Analytics and Decision Sciences group at Mobius. His primary role is to help Mobius’ clients make quicker, data-informed, knowledge-based risk management decisions that have a high probability of success. He works closely with the Strategy team to develop optimal hedge strategies for clients, and to efficiently manage the client portfolio derivative exposure. Mohit developed M-RiskTM, Mobius’ proprietary risk evaluation process, as well as several statistical tools that quantify and rank the factors driving hedge attractiveness. Knowing where the risk sits, where the attractive hedge opportunities lie, coupled with the knowledge of client financial objectives, risk tolerance and capital plans, leads to efficient hedging with the highest probability of success for the client.

Prior Experience

Before joining Mobius in 2018, Mohit was heading the options desk at Koch Supply & Trading, where he was managing a proprietary crude and products option book. He was also responsible for managing the portfolio tail risk for the physical crude, products, fuel, NGL and Ags desks, which he accomplished using options. Prior to Koch, he was a portfolio manager at AAA Capital Management, managing an oil options trading strategy based both on fundamentals and quantitative analysis. He moved to AAA from Entergy Koch/Merrill Lynch Commodities, where he developed and traded proprietary natural gas option strategies. Additionally, he proposed trade structures and enhanced return/index strategies to hedge funds and was the primary hedge structurer for corporate clients (producers, consumers, and refiners).
