The Fortis Global Solutions, an internationally recognized commodity futures and brokerage firm with global access to most liquid markets, has launched today its first Managed Futures Strategy Fund with highlights on Exchange Traded Fund.
- (1888PressRelease) May 24, 2011 - "With the introduction of our first ETF Managed Futures Strategy, we are thrilled to bring a new and ground-breaking trading service to the marketplace worldwide. In today's market trends, we recognize the fact that managed futures has been considered as one of the most important asset classes as more investors are looking for less associated assets that can generate profits in various market environments. We believe that with our new managed futures focused on ETF, we can add up significant benefits to investors by employing the ETF structure which offers full holdings transparency and comparatively low cost, without the many restrictions basically linked with conventional product structures such as loads, minimum investment requirements and brokerage commission," commented Mr. Trey Dewitt, the CEO and President of the Fortis Global Solutions.
The Fortis Global Solutions newly enhanced Exchange traded Fund Managed Futures Strategy is intended to provide potential returns which also seeks to offer: potential profit from rising and falling markets; exposure to commodities which are presently benefitting from strong global demand; diversification through uncorrelated asset merge and a long or short strategy; and potential to perform in both deflationary and inflationary market environments.
Furthermore, the Fortis Global Solutions warns investors that there are potential risks connected with investing which might include possible loss of principal capital. Investment through this fund is definitely speculative as it involves significant degree of risks and must not therefore constitute the investor's entire investment portfolios. One of the risks linked with this fund is the intricacies of the various factors which add up to the fund's performance as well as its connection or non-connection to other asset classes. These considerable factors include the use of short and long positions in commodity futures contracts, swaps, currency forward contracts and other derivatives. However, derivatives can also be volatile and therefore may be less liquid than other securities and other asset classes and considered more sensitive to the effects of diverse economic environments.
In addition, the fund must not be employed as a proxy for short only or long only positions in currencies or commodities. The fund could lose substantial value at some point of periods when long only indices rise or decline. Basically, the fund's investment objective is patterned after the historic price trends. Indeed, there can be no guarantee that those trends will be indicated in the future market movements. The fund normally does not create intra-month amendments and therefore is subject to considerable losses if the market shifts against the fund's recognized positions on an intra-month basis.
