Managed futures are a type of alternative investment that invest primarily in the futures market and other derivative securities. Managed futures take long and short positions in futures contracts, they focus largely on equity indexes, interest rates, and currency. These funds are managed by commodity-trading advisers (CTA) and are regulated by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and the National Futures Association.
One advantage of managed futures is their potential to earn a profit in any type of economic environment. Unfortunately for many investors there are often exorbitant fees associated with these investments that may completely wipe out any profits. Managed futures fees typically range between 7% to 9% of assets invested, in addition to 20% of any profits. Brokers that sell managed futures can also earn up to 4% of assets invested.
Often managed future funds are pitched to investors as a way to diversify their portfolio and potentially earn profits when traditional markets are down.
It appears that many brokers, influenced by the high commissions, failed to perform adequate due diligence on the fund and either did not fully understand the extent of these profit eating fees or recommended that their clients invest anyway. If a broker or brokerage firm recommends a managed-future fund inappropriately, they can be liable for investment losses or the recoupment of the fees paid.
