Synchronicity Futures launches commodity long-short programme

RELATED TOPICS​

Synchronicity Futures, a licensed commodity trading adviser (CTA), has launched the Commodity Long-Short Programme with a USD10 million commitment from the Dickson Family of Detroit, Michigan.

The programme aims to maximise long-term absolute returns with low correlation to both commodity and equity markets through a diversified and liquid portfolio of commodity futures contracts that are systematically managed.
 
The programme is designed to provide institutional money managers, registered investment advisors, and high-net-worth individuals with a diversified, liquid, and non-correlated product that can enhance the risk-adjusted returns of their existing portfolio holdings.
 
The programme can invest across 22 liquid commodity contracts including grains, livestock, soft goods, precious and industrial metals, and energy.
 
A unique aim of the programme is to systematically capitalise on rising and falling opportunities so that returns have very low correlation with commodity and equity markets.
 
Synchronicity Futures began trading The Commodity Long-Short Programme on 3 October.
 
“An uncertain equity environment and an abundance of correlated products are combining to create real demand for high-return, low-correlation investment solutions,” says Ben Upward (pictured), chief investment officer and managing principal of Synchronicity Futures. “We believe our new systematic, low-correlation commodity programme can be valuable to traditional and alternative-focused investors enabling them to achieve truly differentiated outcomes with greater transparency.”
