“Portfolios…including judicious investments…in leveraged managed futures accounts show substantially less risk at every possible level of expected return than portfolios of stocks (or stocks and bonds) alone.”  - Dr. John Litner

WHAT ARE MANAGED FUTURES?

Managed Futures describes an industry made up of professional money managers known as Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs).

With practically a zero correlation with stocks, CTA's can add profound diversification to an overall investment portfolio by using global futures markets as an investment medium, taking positions based on expected profit potential.

Knowledgeable investment professionals have been using managed futures for more than 30 years. Institutional Investors, such as corporate and public pension funds, endowments, trusts and banks have made managed futures part of a well diversified portfolio.

Managed Futures as an asset class is increasingly being recognized as an important investment alternative that can potentially enhance returns and lower the overall volatility of a portfolio.

CTAs are regulated by the National Futures Association and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. All stated rates of return must meet stringent regulatory standards.

The primary source of income for most CTAs is an incentive fee that can only be earned by producing ongoing new profits for a customer's account (net of all costs).

In June 2003, It is estimated that over $65 billion dollars was under management by trading advisors.*
