Capabilities

Our Strategies

Our platform includes single-manager, multi-manager, and sector-focused funds that employ Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs).

Our Approach

We seek to generate returns with low correlation to traditional and alternative investments and to outperform in crisis periods. We employ a rigorous top-down and bottom-up investment process to identify CTAs that have the potential to generate alpha and provide diversification benefits. We maintain strong relationships with new and emerging managers to secure ongoing investment capacity on behalf of our investors.

Alternative investments are speculative and include a high degree of risk. Investors could lose all or a substantial amount of their investment. Alternative investments are suitable only for long-term investors willing to forego liquidity and put capital at risk for an indefinite period of time. Alternative investments are typically highly illiquid – there is no secondary market for private funds, and there may be restrictions on redemptions or assigning or otherwise transferring investments into private funds. Alternative investment funds often engage in leverage and other speculative practices that may increase volatility and risk of loss. Alternative investments typically have higher fees and expenses than other investment vehicles, and such fees and expenses will lower returns achieved by investors.
