Managed Futures -
An Alternative Investment For Mutual Fund Investors

by Noble DraKoln, futures analyst

Many investors are not familiar with the various ways to go about
participating in futures. Among the wealthy, along with investors in
the know, there is a simple but slightly expensive way to invest in
futures, managed accounts.

These managed accounts are known as Managed Futures. A CTA
(Commodity Trading Advisor) will typically devise a strategy to trade
the futures markets. In this way he is similar to a fund manager. A
CTA will then raise capital from various institutions and private
investors. The minimum investment can range from $50,000 to

Once that is accomplished they will then use their strategy to
increase the money under management. In return they will charge a
management fee of 1-2% and a 20% profit sharing incentive fee.

At the close of last year the top five CTA's with more than $10
million under management were up 13.29%, 61.37%, 36.56%, 56.80%,

The stock market doesn't compare. Over the last three years the
Nasdaq had a 74 percent drop, which cost shareholders $4.8 trillion
in paper wealth through last Friday. U.S. stocks have fallen 40-plus-
percent as a whole, which Wilshire Associates calculates has cost $7
