With the volatility in the financial markets since September 2008, investors have been looking for calmer waters to ride out the storm. Many people are looking to move capital from stocks and hedge funds into other investment classes that are non-correlated to equities. Transparency and long-term lockups are a concern for all investors.
The majority of futures funds report their trading performance after month-end. Investors wishing to redeem often are limited to monthly or quarterly withdrawals with 15 days or more notice
The team at Autumn Gold Portfolio Management has created a fund that offers solutions to the limitations of the funds of the past. Their new Multi-Advisor Fund will provide investors with a daily valuation of the fund. Investors will also be able to see the fund’s aggregate daily positions, including the number of long and short contracts. Additionally, investors will have the ability to make subscriptions and redemptions on a weekly basis.
The Managing Member of Autumn Gold Portfolio Management, LLC is Kim Avery. Ms. Avery will be responsible for the selection of commodity trading advisors for the fund using a proprietary system that she has developed throughout her thirty-year career in the futures industry. In her book “Building Wealth with Managed Futures”, she explains the statistical methods for evaluating a commodity trading advisor and how to select traders for a diversified portfolio. These methods of evaluating risk, limiting leverage, and diversifying across trading styles and markets traded are some of the fundamental strategies that she employs.
