Our Process

Fund Manager Selection

Perhaps the most critical and overlooked factor when investing in alternatives is manager selection.

Steben & Company's manager selection process seeks to eliminate managers with unattractive long term risk-reward profiles. We employ a proprietary screening process that uses advanced quantitative and qualitative processes to identify managers that we feel are likely to have strong risk-adjusted performance going forward.

Manager Selection Process


For Steben & Company's managed futures funds, we monitor every trade that occurs in the funds, every day. Steben was among the first to do this. Our monitoring systems have been built and refined over the course of 26 years.

We also seek transparency in our hedge fund products. Our investment and operational due diligence processes are extremely detailed and we employ third party risk monitoring services to help monitor exposure levels within the funds.
