The risk of loss in trading commodity futures, options, and foreign exchange ("forex") is substantial. CTA Introduction Absolute Plus Management was founded in August 1999 and has investment strategies with track records dating back to April 1998. APM's forte is identifying consistent sources of alpha in the liquid global markets and engineering robust process driven strategies to capture excess returns. The firm places paramount importance on liquidity and transparency - key features of all its products. The unique investment approach exploits the nature of boom, bust and consolidation cycles by allocating among APM's value, directional and dislocation strategies in commodities, currencies and global rates. The process is portable to a wide variety of liquid markets and the asset mix can be tailored to client portfolios. The firm has focused on bundling its alpha generators into two separate funds: APM Hedged Global Commodity (HGC), a commodity alternative and APM Global, a macro tactical asset allocation strategy. From an asset allocation sandpoint, the funds capitalize on the cyclical return variance among value, direction and dislocation by constraining risk budget for losing strategies and allowing for modest tilts towards winning strategies. APM delivers superior risk adjusted returns by relying on the stability and insight of senior management, the diversified capital market experience of the team and constant focus on research in ever-changing market environments.
