Individual and High Net Worth Investors can Benefit from Managed Futures.
At RCG Managed Futures, we offer access to a wide set of Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) to help individuals and high net worth investors, family offices, and institutions gain exposure to products that are not necessarily correlated to the stock market, \such as agricultural products, metals, stock indices, fixed income and more.
Professionally Managed Accounts
A managed futures account can provide exposure to the futures markets without an investor necessarily needing the skills to be a successful trader. CTAs are professional traders who, in most cases are paid when the investor makes money in the market; therefore, just like you, the CTA has an incentive to have the account positively perform
Diversification Beyond Traditional Assets
One of the biggest advantages of managed futures is their potential independence from other markets such as equities, bonds and cash. Since there is a possibility of little or no correlation to the S&P 500, the returns of the managed futures allocation in the portfolio will not necessarily be correlated to the returns of the stock market allocation of the portfolio. Adding managed futures is a way to diversify your overall investment portfolio.
Transparency of Investment
Managed Futures differ from most other alternative investments because it offers transparency and marked to the market exchange traded contracts. As an FCM, Rosenthal Collins Group will provide daily statements of the customer’s account activity and balances which show the value of the products traded marked to the market.
Liquidity and Accessibility
Managed futures offer price certainty and liquidity because futures are traded on a regulated exchange. Where many other alternative investments are not priced to the market and are not able to be sold in short order, managed futures are priced continuously to the market on an open and regulated exchange.
With managed futures the account is your own and created in your name. Unlike traditional funds which may require a 30, 45, 90 day or even longer lock-up period before you can withdraw your money, there is no lock-up in managed futures. You are only subject to market liquidity.
