Centaurus Advisors operates in a unique niche. John Arnold explains: "After Enron collapsed, there was a general revaluation of credit risk among energy companies. The better credits were less willing to take on the lesser credits as counter parties. So the lesser credits found themselves with fewer counter parties willing to trade with them, even though they still needed to hedge the pricing risks in their business. Hedge funds previously had not been involved in the over-the-counter market, except for the very largest, because the other participants were reluctant to grant credit to that type of entity." Specifically, the fund concentrates its investments on natural-gas storage caverns and power plants, a strategy that some have likened to a mini-Enron. Centaurus Advisors is widely considered to be a major player in the energy markets.
