What is CTASSET?
Access to Talent
Through CTASSET, investors have the
ability to invest in top-tier macro, managed futures and hedge fund managers at much lower minimums than direct managed
accounts with the managers, accessing through pooled Manager Cells with semi-monthly liquidity.
An arm of the platform, Hydra Emerging, offers access to newer and smaller programs.
Tactical strategies consist of global macro, CTA, FX, commodities and volatility-trading programs.
The common theme is a source of diversification and a generator of returns uncorrelated to mainstream equity and fixed income investments.
According to Bloomberg estimates as of mid-2013, of the roughly $2.5 Trillion in alternatives worldwide, there was more than $325 Billion in managed futures (which includes CTAs, FX managers, commodities managers).
Best Way to invest in Managers
CTASSET allows investors to get
“best of both worlds”:
Like a managed account, you can access intra-month liquidity, leverage, transparency, and custody with your own brokerage.
Like a hedge fund, you have limited liability, no operational & legal burdens of a managed account.
