About Managed Futures
Managed Futures is an investment class that may provide the opportunity for diversification not typically available in traditional stock and bond portfolios and used by investors seeking to diversify their portfolios for more than thirty years.
The Managed Futures Industry is comprised of professional money managers know as Commodity Trading Advisors ("CTAs") who trade on behalf of investors using their own unique trading system usually through the analysis of fundamental or technical factors. Generally, a CTA takes a market position when, in their opinion, the potential for profit outweighs the risk of the trade.
Each CTA must be registered as a Commodity Trading Advisor with the National Futures Association (“NFA”), the industry's self-regulatory organization authorized by Congress in 1982 or the CTA must have filed an exemption with the NFA. Oahu Capital Group, LLC is a registered CTA and managed futures programs illustrated are held at Straits Financial.
