Overview

The term “Managed Futures” describes an industry made up of professional money managers known as commodity trading advisors (“CTA”). A CTA, in return for management and incentive fees, manage client assets seeking capital appreciation, using global futures markets as an investment medium. These professional managers are (1.) required to be registered with a U.S government agency, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”), (2.) qualify to become members of the National Futures Association (“NFA”), and (3.) provide a current disclosure document for each prospective investor.

The Benefits of Managed futures within a well-balanced portfolio are:

  1. The opportunity for reduced portfolio volatility risk. One of the primary benefits of adding a non-correlated managed futures component to a diversified investment portfolio is that it may decrease overall portfolio risk.
  2. The potential for enhanced portfolio returns. While managed futures can decrease overall portfolio risk, they can also simultaneously enhance overall portfolio performance.
  3. The ability to profit in any economic environment. Managed futures trading advisors trade both up-trending as well as down-trending markets.
  4. Global diversification. Diversified trading advisors have over 150 different worldwide markets to use in their programs.
