Managed futures are an alternative investment strategy that seeks to generate profits by trading financial and commodity futures markets. Managed futures can provide diversification for long-term equity and bond allocations and reduce portfolio volatility. These funds have been an important component of institutional investment portfolios for more than a decade.
The Winton Absolute Return Futures Fund gives UK investors access to the firm’s diversified managed futures approach. The fund combines trend following with other managed futures trading strategies to construct portfolios capable of navigating a range of market environments.
