- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Summarizing, 2022 underlined the case that trend following CTAs should not only be a part of a portfolio to provide diversification or crisis alpha, but can also be a true performance engine that contributes to the overall portfolio performance in various environments.

HedgeNordic put together a special report on “Managed Futures / CTA” that will cover a wide area of topics. Kathryn Kaminski and Yingshan Zhao review the “Themes of 2022” and Man AHL’s Adi Mackic discusses “The Need for Speed in Trend-Following Strategies.” In “ESG – No Hiding Behind the Hedges,” Harold de Boer takes on the ESG discussion around Managed Futures strategies. Mike Going, Mike Marcey, and Marat Molyboga from Chicago-based Efficient Capital look into the question “Inflation, Post-Inflation, No Inflation – what’s an Investor to do?” Christoph Junge and his team at Danish pension fund Velliv “Value Simplicity over Complexity” when selecting CTA managers. In an interview with Hamlin Lovell, Nick Granger gives deep insights into “PIMCO’s Pure Play Trend Following Strategy.

Linus Nilsson and Tanya Gupta from NilssonHedge look into the challenge of benchmarking a CTA in “Apples to Apples using Pears,” while Alan Dunne and Niels Kaastrup Larsen from the podcast Top Traders Unplugged address the topic of “Bringing back Crisis Alpha” and share findings from their recent podcasts with some of the leading managers in this space. For some years, HedgeNordic has had the pleasure of gathering local and international CTA managers and investors to a round table.

A summary of the last session from November 2022 is also featured in this report. While no one knows what the future holds, the same may be true for the CTA space as for Mark Twain, who supposedly replied to a newspaper inquiry on his death “The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” We do hope there are some interesting reads for you in this publication.
