The CFL Fund is a multi-manager alternative investment fund that combines systematic trend-followers with discretionary and short term trading managers. This multi-manager, multi-strategy approach lowers volatility and increases returns. Over 180 major financial and commodity markets are traded. The aim of The CFL Fund is to provide shareholders with consistent above average capital growth in all market conditions.
2008 was a vintage year for the managed futures industry and The CFL Fund performed well. Uncertainty and volatility, the chief drivers of managed futures performance, are likely to remain a strong feature in 2009. Last year the trend followers capitalized on fine long term trends. This year the markets are likely to be more erratic, thus favoring shorter term traders.
The CFL Fund manager selection approach has always been to be broadly diversified across uncorrelated strategies and markets. Under current conditions it will be as important as ever to remain faithful to this philosophy. For the same reason, now is not the time to be overleveraged. Caution is still the watchword and the markets are finely poised to move erratically in either direction. The CFL Fund will maintain a conservative stance in this regard. Within this context we have re-weighted The CFL Fund’s portfolio of traders in favor of managers who can take advantage of short term market fluctuations, while maintaining a core holding in the longer term trend followers, which have historically produced the best returns over time. The CFL Fund’s short term managers are Quantam, QIM and Banyan and the core long term managers are Winton and Altis.
The CFL Fund’s assets are allocated to a group of carefully selected professional CTAs. These CTAs are chosen by AMT Futures Limited (London) to manage the trading. Each CTA is independent and are selected for their specialist markets and trading skills. The chosen group of CTAs trade a diversified portfolio of exchange traded derivative instruments including bonds, interest rates, currencies, stock indices and commodities. These instruments are from the world’s most industrialized nations.
We conduct the usual and expected filtering, quantitative analyses and detailed due diligence (including inspecting company infrastructure, background of principals, understanding the strategy, risk management and back office procedures) to identify ‘best of breed’ managers. However, we place greater emphasis on our qualitative analysis and our judgment: we must believe that the manager is likely to make money going forward.
