Of the 115 programs in the 2020 CTA Challenge, we have seen performance range from -53% to +69% ROR since January 1st (gross performance numbers) as of the end of September. Just like the futures market prices, the performance moves for CTA managed futures programs have been all over the place. The unpredictable nature of market price moves, both in direction and size, require CTAs to employ hefty risk controls if they want to protect their customers from large losses in the investment accounts.
In the CTA Challenge, we take a risk-adjusted approach to analyzing and ranking CTA programs to ensure we are evaluating performance and risk numbers achieved as well as performance and risk exposures. We are evaluating “what actually happened” and also looking at “what could have happened.” See below for the most recent Top 5 ranked programs year-to-date in the CTA Challenge.
To better navigate this landscape, interested investors should contact a Coquest representative with any questions on accessing Managed Futures.
Please note that Managed Futures investments and trading in futures, in general, can carry leverage and a high degree of risk. It is not suitable for all investors. See the full disclosure notice at the bottom of this newsletter. And, as always, past performance is not indicative of future results.
