Managed Futures

When Critical Events OccurManaged futures can be an attractive alternative because they are specifically designed to make money in both up and down markets. Their performance is not dependent on the business cycles, as some of the best years for managed futures have occurred during bear markets or recessions—lowering your overall investment portfolio risk.

Four Cornerstone Benefits of Managed Futures

1. Taming the Volatility Monster

The key benefit to investing in managed futures is to reduce portfolio volatity due to the uniquely low-to-negative correlation with all other asset classes, everything from the stock market and real estate to fine art and collectibles.

2. Boosting Total Portfolio Returns

Not only can managed futures reduce volatility risk through dynamic diversification, there is substantial academic and practical evidence that
shows they can also increase your total return.

3. Equal Inflation and Deflation Opportunities

But isn’t inflation dead? The fact is the threat remains very real and is growing in a way few people understand.

4. 24- Karat Global Diversification

The rapid proliferation of futures exchanges and new contract listings around the world give CTAs an ever increasing trading vehicles and strategy combinations.
