The Hatteras Managed Futures Strategies Fund from boutique alternative investment specialist Hatteras Funds is now available on the Charles Schwab Mutual Fund OneSource Platform.
The Hatteras Managed Futures Strategies Fund launched on 27 September 2012. The team has managed the strategy since September 2011 as one of the five strategies within Hatteras Alpha Hedged Strategies Fund. The Managed Futures Strategies Fund seeks to achieve positive returns in both rising and falling equity markets with an annualised level of volatility that is lower than historic equity markets.
"The Hatteras Managed Futures Strategies Fund is well-diversified and is designed to offer low correlation to both broad markets and other managed futures products. The fund can be utilised to further diversify portfolios offering the potential for downside protection in a wide array of market environments," says Hatteras Funds' president Bob Worthington (pictured).
The fund offers investors exposure to managed futures within a liquid, fully transparent and actively managed mutual fund. It is designed to provide low correlation to equities, bonds and other alternative investments. The fund currently invests in four underlying commodity trading advisors which tend to focus on short to intermediate term trading strategies, making it a potential complement to other longer-term trend following managers.
The fund's four managers include Dominion Capital Management, 2100 Xenon Group, Northfield Trading and Revolution Capital Management.
