Our Approach

IASG believes in the power of managed futures to enhance your portfolio and help you meet your investment goals. Whether you’re an individual investor or the head of a trust or investment firm, you can count on us to guide you with the service, support, and knowledge you need to invest wisely in alternatives.

The Managed Futures Experts Since 1992

IASG was founded in 1992 with one important goal: to help investors understand and take advantage of managed futures and other smart alternative investments. Nearly a quarter century later, that’s still our focus. Drawing on our in-depth industry knowledge and our comprehensive database of Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) and Managed Forex Managers, we help institutional and individual investors select the right advisors for their risk tolerance and expected rate of return.

Benefits of Investing in Managed Futures

  • All-weather performance potential. Because of the ability to trade long or short, managed futures have the potential to generate profits in both rising and falling markets—an invaluable safeguard in today’s volatile global markets.
  • Improved portfolio risk and return profile. When added to a traditional portfolio of stocks and bonds, managed futures have the potential to reduce volatility and enhance the returns of the entire portfolio, boosting overall portfolio efficiency.
  • Low correlation to traditional investments. Historically, managed futures have exhibited low correlation to other asset classes. Because of this, they can serve as an effective hedge to your stock and bond portfolio during times of economic uncertainty.
  • Powerful diversification opportunities. With 6 sectors, 150+ markets, and highly flexible investment timeframes and strategies, managed futures trading programs make it easy to add broad, global diversification to your portfolio.
  • Transparency you can trust. Unlike some alternative investments, managed futures offer full position and strategy transparency, so you know exactly what your investments are doing at all times.
