Managed Futures

Managed futures have gained popularity as an alternative investment vehicle for the last several years. By offering managed futures we are able to offer our clients an opportunity to diversify his or her portfolio with an asset class that is not correlated to the stock market.

An Introduction To Managed Futures

A Managed Futures account is an account in which a registered Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) is given responsibility to make all trading decisions on your behalf. CTAs are professional money managers who manage an investor's assets using investments in the commodities markets just as a stock mutual fund manager would invest his client's assets in a variety of different stocks. As a diversified portfolio of uncorrelated asset classes, managed futures accounts have the potential to provide positive returns with potentially lesser amounts of volatility and risk. Using global futures markets as an investment medium, CTAs take long and short positions in futures contracts, government securities, and options on futures contracts. Based on technical analysis and expected potential, CTAs direct investments in areas such as: global currency, interest rate, equity indexes, metals, grains, energy, agricultural products and commodities. Please be advised that trading futures and options involves substantial risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results. There is no guarantee of profit no matter who is managing your money. An investor must read and understand the Commodity Trading Advisor's current disclosure document before investing.

Through ADM Investor Services, Silver Creek Commodities is able to offer several different money managers to its clients.
