Steben & Company’s strength is our ability to conduct global manager due diligence, selection, allocation and monitoring. For over a quarter century, our Research and Risk Management Team has searched globally for what we believe are the best investment managers available for inclusion in our Funds.
By developing investment products that combine these managers, and then consistently monitoring and evaluating their performance, we can deliver the types of products that investors seek when allocating to alternative investments.
Managed futures trading advisors take both long and short positions in over 200 futures markets from around the globe, including currencies, energies, interest rates, metals, equity indices and agricultural commodities. These markets are impacted — positively or negatively — by geopolitical concerns, currency risk and local investor sentiment, among other factors. By trading in global markets, the trading advisors can potentially take advantage of worldwide price trends that are often driven by these events.
