eFloorTrade Now Offering Barclay Hedge Top Ranked CTA to Accredited Investors

ORLANDO, Fla. - May 1, 2014 - PRLog -- eFloorTrade, through its managed account programs offers Global Sigma believed to be the best risk adjusted returns money can buy in the managed futures industry.  Global Sigma received the “Best Emerging CTA of 2014” at the International hedge fund awards.  Barclay Hedge ranked them “Top Performing CTA” over the past three years ranked by compound annual return for the period ending June 2013.

“Bringing top ranked managers to our managed futures programs is our top priority at eFloorTrade,” said John Moore, managing member at eFloorTrade.  “We are not interested in offering every single manager in the managed futures space, but only the handful that are extraordinary in their performance,” said Moore of eFloorTrade.  Global Sigma’s strategy mainly trades US equity index futures and options on futures contracts.  eFloorTrade believes this strategy is most suitable for investors who are seeking an alternative return, or diversification which has the potential to gain consistently over time.

Moore notes, “An average return over the past five years of 20% per year with a 7.0 Sharp ratio is impressive in anyone’s portfolio.  Most notable is that because the strategy utilizes weekly expirations, the manager offers weekly liquidity and daily transparency which is uncommon in the managed futures space.”  “Also, because the manager is using index futures and options on futures only, one can argue that the portfolio meets the diversification needs of many.  One of the problems with diversification is that as diversification increases with the number of securities in one’s portfolio, so also does the liquidity risk,” said Moore.

eFloorTrade believes there to be significant benefits to accredited investors seeking managed futures as an addition to their portfolios.  Section 1256 tax treatment, the zero cost of money when leveraging, cross margining when utilizing multiple managers/programs, and the transparency/liquidity.

“eFloorTrade remains committed to offering programs that add value to our clients,” said Moore.
