Learn why you should you consider adding Managed Futures to your investment Portfolio. Managed Futures as an asset class has grown over 1000 times over in the past 35 years according the CME Group in Chicago. In recent years, institutional investors such as pension funds, endowments, trusts and even banks have driven the expansion of the managed futures industry. Managed Futures offer you the opportunity to enjoy the diversification the futures markets can offer your portfolio without having to trade them yourself.
The term “managed futures” describes an industry comprised of professional money managers known as commodity trading advisors (CTAs). These trading advisors manage client assets on a discretionary basis using global futures trading markets as an investment medium.
Managed futures have been used successfully by investment management professionals for more than 30 years. Institutional investors looking to maximize portfolio exposure continue to increase their use of managed futures as an integral component of a well diversified portfolio. With the ability to go both long and short, managed futures are highly flexible financial instruments with the potential to profit from rising and falling markets. Moreover, managed future funds have virtually no correlation to traditional asset classes, with the potential to enhance returns as well as lower overall volatility.
