- Advertisement -

Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Once again, we were humbled and exuberant to attract some of the brightest stars in the CTA space to join us around a table to discuss various topics around Managed Futures which we can now share with you. A very sincere thank you to all participants for sharing your insights with us and for contributing in such a splendid way. A special thank you to those who made the long travel to Stockholm from California, Boston and Chicago.

Joining us for this year’s event were Otto van Hemert (Man AHL), Per Ivarsson (RPM), Harold de Boer (Transtrend), Nick Granger (PIMCO), Martin Källström (Lynx), Kathryn Kaminski (AlphaSimplex), Elena Westerdahl (AP3), Chad Martinson (Efficient Capital), moderated by Kamran Ghalitschi (HedgeNordic).

We enjoyed a vivid and lively discussion, spanning many angles. After a recap of the trading year, looking at markets, performance and performance drivers as well as sources of dispersion for managers and strategies, some of the topics we discussed included “The Long Bond Bias Debate”, “If a CTA doesn’t hedge, what does it do?”, “Diversification,” “Manual Intervention and Choices”, “Client Communication”, “Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, LLM”, “Product Innovation” and an Outlook to the future of Managed Futures.

We hope you enjoy reading through this summary of the round table discussion.
