CTA Introduction

Drury Capital, Inc., was founded in Illinois in 1992 by Mr. Bernard Drury to trade a fundamentally oriented grain trading program. Through extensive research and development, and with his grain trading skills as a foundation, Mr. Drury created the Drury Diversified Trend-Following Program, a stand-alone technical trend-following system in 1997.

Drury Capital began trading client funds in the Drury Diversified Trend-Following Program in May of 1997.

The Drury Diversified Trend-Following Program's trading approach is built on elements of trend-following and diversification. The portfolio emphasizes diversification by trading metals, agricultural products, foreign exchange, stock index futures, energy products, financial instruments and tropical products (softs).

Drury Capital currently offers investors three vehicles for investment in its Drury Diversified Trend-Following Program.

In 2002 Drury Capital Services was created in Princeton, NJ to support Drury Capital, Inc. The DCS staff and infrastructure were added with the intention of continuing to grow assets under management while delivering the superior returns that have historically been characteristic of the Drury Diversified Trend-Following Program. Responsibilities are well distributed among qualified staff members at Drury Capital. Separate professionals with years of experience at industry leaders such as Goldman Sachs Princeton, Deloitte and Touche, J.P. Morgan and Salomon Smith Barney have key responsibilities within the firm.

Bernie launched the Diversified Trend-Following Program in May, 1997. He earned a B.A. at Dartmouth College in 1978 and M.B.A. at the University of Chicago in 1993.

Bernie worked in the grain markets from 1978 until the late 1990’s, before shifting his focus to system development. These early experiences included positions at Louis Dreyfus Corporation, Commodities Corporation, and Goldman Sachs Princeton.

He came to believe that a model-based approach to trading, rigorously researched and applied consistently to a broadly diversified portfolio, would have more enduring value than would the skills of a discretionary trader in a single sector. Thus he set out to establish a process-oriented business built on professionalism, integrity, thoroughness of research and precision in execution.

As of early 2010, the Diversified Trend-Following Program is in its 13th year of operation.
