Top Ten: Barclay Hedge’s most recent ranking.

Tuesday, April 07, 2009

TOP TEN

We feature top managers from a different database every issue.

This issue’s ranking is from Barclay Hedge. The Barclay managed futures database has been in operation for over 20 years. It is updated twice-monthly and covers 910 managed futures programs. These are the top CTAs managing more than $10 million. Barclay has separate rankings for CTAs with less than $10 million assets and for sub-strategies including agricultural, currency, discretionary, systematic and stock index traders.

For an interview with Barclay Hedge founder Sol Waksman, see the February 10th issue of Opalesque Futures Intelligence.
