Managed Futures as an Asset Class
Managed Futures have long been used by Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs), pension plans, endowments and High Net Worth Individuals (HNWI) to diversify risk whilst maintaining optimal return as per their parameters. Managed Futures have traditionally exhibited lower correlations to many asset classes, such as equities, fixed income and real estate and as a subset help to reduce portfolio volatility.
There is an added advantage to exposure to all major asset classes via futures; including but not limited to equities, indices, fixed income, currencies,
energy, agricultural commodities, interest rates.
