A modern look at meaningful asset diversification using managedfutures.

In High-Performance Managed Futures: The New Way to DiversifyYour Portfolio, Mark Melin, a veteran of the managed futuresindustry, updates a Nobel Prize–winning investment method,guiding readers through investing in managed futures programs,where experienced money managers investclient assets in markets asdiverse as metals, grains, soft commodities, energy, equityindexes, interest rates, foreign currency, and U.S. governmentbonds.

Many of today's investors are betrayed by either short-termthinking or another of Wall Street'smantras—buy and hold.High-Performance Managed Futures exposes market myths, whilealsodetailing how managed futures can help investors achievemeaningful asset diversification.

From the Inside Flap:

What is your financial adviser not recommending and why not?Managed futures. And, probably because he or she either lacks anunderstanding of the asset class or because managed futures offertrue diversification—and a truly diversified portfolio can betime-consuming—it means much more work for them. It's easierto sell clients on "stocks and bonds" and "buy and hold." Well,here's something you should know:

  • Managed futures grew 514 percent from1999 to 2009

  • Managed futures performed positively innine of the past tenstock market declines

  • Managed futures significantly outperformed both stocks and bondsover the past three decades

And, as you'll come to discover in High-Performance ManagedFutures: The New Way to Diversify Your Portfolio, what makes theasset class truly unique is its relative non-correlation to thestock market and the economy, which is especially important intoday's world in which global markets are more tightlycorrelatedthan at any other time in history.

Managed futures has been described as "mutual fund"-likeprograms investing around the world in commodities—oil, gold,corn, or wheat—and financial futures—interest rates,foreign currency, or stock indexes. Investments can even take placein pollution and weather futures. The asset class has no geographicor time-based investment limitation, and, unlike stock mutualfunds, strategies can be long, short, or market-neutral. And,unlike hedge funds, managed futures can be transparent, liquid, andtightly regulated—investor protections that should be used asa national template.

What your financial adviser doesn't know—or isn't tellingyou—can hurt your portfolio. With government debt at anall-time high and the U.S. dollar's dominant status in question,there's never been a better time to seek a sophisticated modernportfolio that has the potential to profit in both bull and bearmarkets. Managed futures can do that. High-Performance ManagedFutures shows you how.
