Managed Futures Funds
Alpha Advisors is continually searching for options that support long term investment strategies by balancing opportunity and volatility. For many investors, as a portfolio grows, alternative investment vehicles are sought in an effort to improve returns while offsetting volatility from traditional market securities.
Managed futures funds are one such investment that can help buffer variations that occur elsewhere in a portfolio while often offering out sized returns. Because their correlation with traditional markets is typically minimal, managed futures funds can help a portfolio weather market fluctuations. For the right investor this can be a prudent choice for portfolio performance and diversification.
Alpha Advisors can help you decide whether managed futures funds should be an element of your portfolio strategy. We have established relationships with funds that have not only established track records, but that offer clearly articulated strategies, liquidity and investor protections.
To learn more about managed futures and the funds themselves, please contact us for a consultation.
What Are Managed Futures?
Managed futures are alternative investments that speculate on the future price of currencies, commodities, stock market indexes, and interest rates. The benefit of investing in managed futures comes from their long history of low correlation to other market based asset groups. For example, if the performance of stocks and bonds declines during a period of inflation, certain managed futures might perform well during the same economic conditions.

Venture Capital & Limited Partnerships
Late Stage Venture Capital
For certain clients of ours, there is an increasing need to diversify into asset classes that are less correlated to traditional markets. Private equity offers just such an opportunity. When looking at historical private equity returns, venture capital as an asset class has outperformed nearly every other.
