TOP TEN

We feature top managers from a different database every issue.

We decided to do something different for this issue’s Top Ten. Instead of the programs with the highest returns, ManagedFutures.eu picked the programs with smallest drawdowns.

These commodity trading advisors have track records of more than two years. The average rate of return refers to the track record.

Ranking Based on Drawdown,from ManagedFutures.eu database and CTA Index.
