With more than 30 years of investment experience, with both private and public companies, Mr. Izatt most recently served as Chief Investment Officer for Quantum Reservoir Impact.  Previously, Mr. Izatt was ranked the No. 1 All-American Fixed Income Energy Analyst by Institutional Investor for multiple years while serving as Senior Managing Director for Bear Stearns and Senior Vice President for Lehman Brothers. He ran the Global Oil and Gas Group while serving at Moody's Investors Service. Additionally, Institutional Investor highlighted his outstanding credentials, including his ability to move markets, his significant relationships within the oil and gas industry and with investors, and his ability to see beyond financials to truly understand the company management.

"Mr. Izatt's exemplary experience in commodities, credit and bonds will reinforce SDKA International's leading role in the resource management space," noted SDKA International Chief Executive Officer Christopher Kelly.  "As Chief Strategy Officer, Ted will play a critical role in expanding the size and scope of SDKA International's current and future product offerings."

In his new role, Mr. Izatt will leverage his extensive knowledge of both commodities and commodity cycles to guide the expansion of SDKA International's sourcing, trading, sales and distribution efforts.
