Top Ten: Largest CTA Firms.

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

Largest CTA Firms

We asked veteran investor Richard Bornhoft, head of Equinox Fund Management and The Bornhoft Group, for his selection of top commodity trading advisors. He provided a list - not a ranking - of the largest CTA firms in the world. We€™ve added comments.

Winton and QIM are components of the MutualHedge Frontier Legends Fund managed by Mr. Bornhoft - see Inside Talk and Regulator.

Earlier this year we published a similar list chosen from the components of the Altegris 40 index - the Top Ten in Opalesque Futures Intelligence January 7, 2010. Most of the names are the same as in that ranking, but not all.
