Diversification, Low Volatility, Increased Returns & Liquidity

Managed futures are an asset class that has achieved strong performance in both bull and bear markets, boasting solid long-term track records despite economic downturns and exhibiting low correlation to traditional asset classes such as Equities, Debt, Cash, and Real Estate.
In general, as one asset class goes up, some other assets classes go down.  Managed Futures are allocated across a wide range of assets allowing for a greater consistency of returns.
When used in conjunction with traditional asset classes, Managed Futures have shown to reduce risk, while at the same time increasing returns.  Managed Futures typically do well in down markets because they employ short-selling and options strategies that allow them to profit in such markets.
