The Center on Global Energy Policy (CGEP) at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs (SIPA) announced Colin Fenton today as a Fellow. Fenton's work will focus on global energy markets.
Since 2010, Fenton supervised commodities research at J.P. Morgan Chase & Co., where he was also the firm's chief commodities strategist, until stepping down recently. Earlier in his career, Fenton was a managing partner at Curium Capital Advisors, a managing director at Duquesne Capital Management, the Chief Intelligence Officer of Ospraie Management, and a member of the Commodities Research Group at Goldman, Sachs & Co. Fenton holds a Masters of Science in Foreign Service from Georgetown University's Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service. He also is a graduate of Princeton University, where he studied history.
“This is another sign of the Center’s commitment to advancing research with real-world insight for our most complex energy market questions,” said Jason Bordoff, director of the Center on Global Energy Policy. “Colin has unparalleled experience at the intersection of energy and financial markets and is one of the most insightful people I know in the field. We look forward to having him apply that extensive knowledge and wisdom to his research here.”
The Fellows Program brings prominent energy thought leaders to the Center on Global Energy Policy to research and write, teach, and otherwise contribute to Columbia University's robust and deep intellectual community focused on energy issues.
