About The CTA Challenge

The CTA Challenge is a year-long research campaign that aims to evaluate and promote best-of-breed Managed Futures investment products. The CTA Challenge provides active risk-adjusted rankings, based on daily data and analysis. It distributes the results to investors around the globe. There is no cost to register or participate.

We take a risk-adjusted approach to analyzing and ranking CTA programs. Therefore, we evaluate both performance and risk numbers and performance and risk exposures. So, we look at “what actually happened” as well as “what could have happened.” Below are the most recent top 5 ranked programs year-to-date in the CTA Challenge.

Featured CTA

Revolution Capital Management LLC, a Denver-based alternative investment money manager, strives to provide diversification of returns within the managed futures space. The majority of commodity trading advisors (CTAs) pursue some type of trend-following strategy. As a result, Revolution’s goal is to offer complementary products with varying degrees of target correlations to trend-exploiting strategies. By maintaining a focus on developing programs with low correlations to other offerings, Revolution can potentially provide significant benefits to the risk-adjusted characteristics of most managed-futures portfolios.



Featured Sponsor

Gemini Alternative Funds, LLC services the investment community as a Managed Account Platform (Galaxy Plus) and works with dedicated managed accounts and co-mingled funds, as well as a structured product platform sponsor. Galaxy Plus provides a comprehensive platform of centralized operational services and distribution of products.
