Managed Futures refers to an industry of professional money managers known as Commodity Trading Advisors – CTA’s. These trading advisors seek to increase portfolio exposure to international investments and non-financial sectors using various financial instruments. CTA’s take positions based on their goals and experience.
An investment in Managed Futures is a good source of diversification for portfolios of equities and bonds. In times of market uncertainty, diversification in any portfolio is imperative. Benefits of using a CTA include:
- Potential for Reduced Portfolio Volatility Risk
- Potential to Enhance Portfolio Returns
- Ability to earn Profit in any Economic Environment
- Globally Diversify your portfolio

Using our “Diversified Blend Portfolio Model,” we group a collection of non-correlated CTA’s to help you diversify your portfolio.
