What are Managed Futures?

Witherspoon Asset Management represents a differentiated alternative in managed futures mutual fund investing.

What Are Managed Futures?

  • Managed futures describes a diverse subset of active investment strategies that trade in liquid, transparent, centrally-cleared global market exchanges, and deep interbank foreign exchange markets.
  • Managers of these strategies are called Commodity Trading Advisors (“CTAs”) and their trading approaches are largely focused on financial futures markets with additional allocations to energy, metals, and agricultural markets.
  • With the ability to go long or short with equal ease, managed futures are highly flexible financial instruments with the potential to profit from rising or falling markets.
  • Managed futures funds have limited correlation to traditional asset classes, enabling them to provide the opportunity for enhanced returns and lower overall volatility.
  • Managed futures have been used successfully by investment management professionals for more than 30 years, and institutional investors looking to maximize portfolio performance characteristics continue to weigh the use of managed futures as an integral component of a well-diversified portfolio.
