In Search of Crisis Alpha: A Short Guide to Investing in Managed Futures
Senior Investment Analyst, RPM Risk & Portfolio Management
By taking a closer look into what really happens during equity market crisis events (often called tail risk events), this investment primer takes a new approach to explaining Managed Futures and why they can deliver "crisis alpha" opportunities for their investors. Crisis alpha opportunities are profits which are gained by exploiting the persistent trends that occur across markets during times of crisis. By gaining an understanding of why Managed Futures can deliver crisis alpha, the commonly cited benefits and characteristics of Managed Futures can be explained in simpler terms, helping investors to more effectively use the investment strategy as part of a larger investment portfolio.
