Managed Futures as an Asset Class.
"Most individual and institutional investors understand the traditional asset classes. Stocks, bonds, real estate and cash are home to substantial sums of wealth around the globe and have been the backbone of portfolios for generations of investors. But, beyond these asset classes lie several alternative asset classes and strategies. The bulk of these alternative strategies are made up of private equity, infrastructure, and Hedge Funds. Managed Futures are a type of Hedge fund strategy."
"For investors seeking returns beyond traditional assets and strategies, they often look to alternative investments like Managed futures. Simply put the term Managed futures describes a strategy whereby a professional manager assembles a diversified portfolio of futures contracts."
"These professional managers are also known as Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs). While a typical money manager or portfolio manager trades in a diversified portfolio of stocks or bonds or a combination of both, CTAs trade primarily futures contracts. Some CTAs manage their clients' assets by employing proprietary trading systems. Some utilize systematic, computer-driven mechanical strategies and others employ discretionary methods. Managed futures programs generally take long or short positions in futures contracts, offered on exchanges worldwide."
"The strategies and approaches within managed futures are extremely varied but the one common, unifying characteristic is that these managers trade highly liquid, regulated, exchange-traded instruments and foreign exchange markets."
