Managed Futures

Managed futures funds are a particularly interesting investment strategy because historically they have offered a significant degree of downside protection, especially in declining equity markets.

With a historically low or even zero-correlation with stocks, one of the most attractive features of managed futures is their ability to add broad diversification to an overall investment portfolio.

Managed futures funds primarily use standardized futures contracts that trade on highly liquid and strictly regulated futures exchanges worldwide to implement their investment strategies.

Managed futures funds seek absolute returns by taking long and short positions in futures contracts. Unlike some managed futures strategies, which allow for discretion in their trades, the Superfund Managed Futures Strategy Fund uses a highly sophisticated, disciplined, and automated trend following system.

Reasons to Invest
1. High Performance Potential

The graph below shows that managed futures, represented by the CISDM CTA Equal Weighted Index, have historically produced high returns with relatively low volatility. From 01/1980-09/2015 managed futures have also produced absolute positive returns in rising and falling markets versus stock and bond indices.*

2. Low Correlation

Investors are drawn to managed futures because historically they’ve shown a low correlation to other major asset classes. As an example, the chart below compares performance of the S&P 500 and CISDM CTA Equal Weighted Index from 01/01/1980 through 09/30/2015.

It includes 500 of the largest stocks (by market value) listed in the U.S. This time frame was chosen to show the long term performance of managed futures as represented by the CISDM CTA Equal Weighted Index.

3. Potential to Limit Drawdowns

Managed futures also have the potential to limit drawdowns the reduction an investment may periodically experience. Historically, the severity and duration of the draw downs for managed futures has been less than other major indices.

4. Enhanced Portfolio Efficiency

Managed futures have been used to enhance investment portfolios by reducing volatility and improving the risk-adjusted returns over time. As a simple example, this graph illustrates what different combinations of the S&P 500 and CISDM CTA Equal Weighted Index have done from 1/1980-9/2015.

SUPERFUND STRATEGY

Technical Trading Systems

The Fund uses fully automated, proprietary, computerized trading systems
that examine a broad array of investments around the world and seek to identify market patterns
that offer attractive investment opportunities.

The 4 pillars of our investment process are:

Technical Trading Systems
Technical Trading Systems

Superfund use a proprietary algorithm that has been refined over the last 20 years to initiate positions. This disciplined and technical approach to investing effectively eliminates emotional miscalculations periodically seen with other investment strategies.

Trend Following
Trend Following

We don't project the future outcome of an investment. Instead, we focus on detecting clearly defined investment trends over the short, medium and long term horizons and take advantage of them. Once defined, the funds follow a trend until the risk management system tells otherwise. In this way, the Superfund trading strategy seeks to optimize winning trades.

Market Diversification
Market Diversification

At a glance 120 markets seem diversified, yet different investments often act the same. Fundamental to our strategy is ensuring that there is a low correlation amongst portfolio holdings. This ensures the portfolio is properly diversified, enabling us to weather different market conditions.

Financial Futures

Diversification does not ensure a profit, or protect against loss.

Risk Management
Risk Management

Consistent risk management represents the most important element of the trading strategy. The proprietary Superfund trading systems constantly monitor all risk factors and electronically initiate buy and sell orders based on technical analysis. In the event of a major trend reversal due to new factors in the market, the program adjusts to the new environment. In this manner, the systems aim to minimize losses and increase profit potential.

Mutual Fund Risk Disclosure:

Mutual Funds involve risk and the possible loss of principal.

The risks of investing in asset-backed securities include prepayment, extension, interest rate, market and management risk. The value of fixed income securities or derivatives will fluctuate with changes in interest rates. Typically, a risk in interest rates causes a decline in the value of fixed income securities or derivatives. Additionally, the Fund could lose money if the issue or guarantor of fixed income security is unwilling or unable to make timely payments to meets its contractual obligations. Treasury obligations may differ in their interest rates, maturities, times of issuance and other characteristics. No assurance can be given that the U.S. Government will provide financial supports to its agencies and authorities. The value of these securities may be affected by changes in the credit rating of the U.S. Government.

The Fund may invest in derivatives including futures, forwards, options, swaps, including total return swaps, repurchase agreements and other similar instruments that may be more volatile than other investments. Risks include liquidity, interest rate, market, credit and management risks, mispricing and improper valuation. Successful use of forward and futures contracts draws on the Adviser’s skill and experience with respect to such instruments. They are subject to imperfect market value correlation, possible lack of liquidity, unanticipated market movements, and counterparty default. Exposure to commodities may be subject to greater volatility than traditional securities as they are subject to market movements, commodity index volatility, and interest rate changes. Their values could be effected by conditions such as drought, floods, weather, livestock disease, embargos, tariffs, economic, political and regulatory developments. Prices of energy, industrial metals, precious metals, agriculture and livestock can fluctuate due to changes in value, supply, demand, and governmental regulation. The stability and liquidity of many derivative transactions depends largely on the creditworthiness of the parties to the transactions. Counterparties could default, exercise contractual rights or become the subject of insolvency proceedings which could involve delays or costs for the Fund. Derivatives linked to index performance will be subject to risks associated with changes in that index. The use of leverage, such as that embedded in derivatives, will magnify the Fund’s gains or losses.

Short-term trading and higher portfolio turnover may result in higher brokerage fees, commissions, and tax liability to shareholders. Liquidity risk exists when an investment would be difficult to purchase or sell, possibly preventing the Fund from selling such illiquid securities at an advantageous time, price, or requiring the Fund to dispose of other investments at unfavorable times or prices in order to satisfy its obligations. The Fund will use model-based strategies that, while historically effective, may not be successful on an ongoing basis or could contain unknown errors and inaccuracies. The Fund is ‘non-diversified’ and may invest in a small number of companies or instruments, as a result, a change in value of a single security could significantly effect the Fund’s value. Changes in the laws or regulations of the U.S. or other countries, including any changes to applicable tax laws, could impair the ability of the Fund to achieve its investment objective and could increase Fund operating expenses. The Fund may engage in short selling, which carries the potential risk of unlimited losses.

By investing in the Subsidiary, the Fund is indirectly exposed to the risks associated with its investments. The Subsidiary is not registered under the 1940 Act and changes in the laws of the U.S. and/or the Cayman Islands could adversely affect the Fund. The federal income tax treatment of the complex securities in which the Fund may invest may not be clear or may be subject to recharacterization by the IRA, making it more difficult for the Fund to comply with the tax requirements applicable to regulated investment companies. The Fund’s hedging strategy will be subject to the Adviser’s ability to continually and efficiently recalculate, readjust, and execute hedges and the their ability to correctly assess the correlation between the hedging instruments and the portfolio investments.

Foreign (non-U.S.) and emerging market, foreign currencies and sovereign debt securities present greater investment risks than investing in the securities of U.S. issuers and may experience more rapid and extreme changes in value due to less information about foreign companies in the form of reports and ratings, different accounting, auditing and financial reporting requirements, smaller markets, nationalization, expropriation, confiscatory taxation, currency blockage, political changes, and liquidity issues.
