Cap Intro

We maintain active cap introduction relationships with a select number of managers in both the liquid alt & long-only space.

 These relationships can be summarized as follows:


CTAs or Commodity Trading Advisors profit from both intermediate and long-term trends in the futures markets.  CTAs are regulated by the NFA in the US and often by the FCA in the UK.

CTA strategies are intended to enhance the overall portfolio returns of a traditional 60-40 stock and bond portfolio. This goal is achieved through improvements in the downside capture. CTAs provided tail risk protection both in 2022 and 2008  because these strategies have a built-in long volatility bias. 

Traditional investment strategies such as stocks and bonds are implicitly short. Adding CTAs to your portfolio will improve the downside capture ratio and reduce the volatility of your portfolio. 

When the combined portfolio is re-balanced regularly the absolute return can be enhanced at the same time.  CTAs generally do well during periods of macro-economic divergence and rising inflation.
