For individuals looking to speculate in markets such as crude oil, gold, and all futures markets, we offer full services for individuals.  Most investors who trade their own futures accounts need some type of guidance on markets and information.  Therefore, we give the individual investor attention by answering any questions they have about the markets.

Managed Futures are for the sophisticated investors who have a long term investment time horizon.  Usually, a managed futures investor looks to have money with a professional money manager known as a Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) for 3 to 5 years.  The Managed Futures investor is not looking for the next hot trade, but instead is focused on longer term professional money management.

Our firm has provided corporate hedging services for over a decade to some of the most well known publicly traded companies in the world.  Our hedging services are tailored to meet the individual needs of each unique corporation.  We have hedged energy markets, equity indices, and interest rate futures.  We highly encourage you to contact us to learn about hedging your risk exposure. 

MANAGED FUTURES

What are Managed Futures?

The term Managed Futures refers to a 40-year-old industry made up of professional money managers who are known as commodity trading advisors (CTAs). They manage their clients' assets on a discretionary basis. These markets include metals, grains, equity indexes, foreign currency, and global bond futures. Additional markets include soft commodities, for example: cocoa, coffee, cotton, orange juice and sugar, which are some of the oldest commodities still around today. Following a set of investment strategies, CTAs oversee all of these markets and act accordingly in one of two ways: the first is through trend following and the second through the use of discretionary fundamentals such as supply and demand factors. 

Which type of investors use Managed Futures?

For investors, a well balanced Managed Futures portfolio can open the door to diversified global investment opportunities. An investment in Managed Futures can give you the potential to:

  • Reduce risk in a portfolio

  • Enhance a portfolio's returns

  • Profit in both rising and falling markets

  • Participate in global markets

CORPORATE HEDGING

What is Hedging?

Hedging is a strategy put in place to help reduce financial exposure in key areas of operations. It usually involves using futures markets such as currencies, interest rates, commodities, and stock indices to offset that exposure. 

Hedging acts as a tool against unforeseen events that may result in financial loss for a corporation. 

Here are a few examples of the types of companies who would use hedging as a strategy:

  • major publicly traded corporations

  • pension funds

  • insurance companies

 

Putting these hedging strategies in place has the potential to help companies manage cash flow. This is a very important function because it allows companies to budget more effectively for their risk exposure to certain markets.

Caffey Investment Group, Inc. has provided hedging services to major publicly traded companies for over 15 years.
