Managed Futures

Managed futures strategies generally invest both long and short in futures, options and forward contracts on equities and fixed income securities, currencies, interest rates, and commodities. The strategies typically utilize proprietary trading strategies designed to capture trending price movements based on either long or short trading signals. Trades may be short, medium, or long term. Managed futures have historically displayed low correlations to traditional investments, such as stocks and bonds.
