With equities near all-time highs and market participants worried about a rising interest rate environment, investors continue to search for strategies that can help mitigate risk and contribute to overall return. Managed Futures is one strategy that has historically provided uncorrelated return potential, but in a sector where performance dispersion can be high and fees substantial, it is important to understand the various types of managed futures strategies and the role they should play in an overall portfolio allocation.
Join ThinkAdvisor.com and Credit Suisse for this live, interactive webcast. Jordan Drachman, head of Credit Suisse’s Alternative Beta Strategies, will tackle key questions including:
- Who should invest in managed futures?
- What types of returns can be expected?
- When do you invest and how long should you maintain exposure?
- How do you size an allocation?
- Are you overpaying for exposure?
