What are Managed Futures?

Managed Futures is an alternative investment option that allows investors to allocate money to professional futures traders called Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs). The futures markets are leveraged and can offer capital efficiency. Additionally, the futures markets include multiple global market sectors such as Foreign Exchange, Energies, Metals, Interest Rates, Equity Indices, and Commodities.

Managed Futures provide returns distinct from the equity and bond markets primarily due to their ability to participate in both upside and/or downside movements in bull and bear markets. These opportunities are not available to traditional stock and bond portfolios.
