Efficient chosen as research partner for new STOXX Managed Futures Index

Friday, December 14, 2012

Ernest Jaffarian
Opalesque Industry Update - Efficient Capital Management, LLC, a leading provider of multi-manager Managed Futures portfolios, announced its selection as the research partner for the newly launched iSTOXX Efficient Capital Managed Futures 20 Index. This new Managed Futures Index will feature 20 of the world’s largest Commodity Trading Advisors (“CTAs”) based upon assets under management as well as additional rules based criteria. STOXX is recognized globally as one of the premier index providers of transparent global indices such as the EURO STOXX 50. This new partnership between STOXX and Efficient is expected to bring the strengths of both firms to investors interested in the Managed Futures world.

Efficient, as the research partner, collaborated with STOXX to develop a rules based methodology to create an index that captures the returns of Managed Futures as an asset class. Efficient will provide all the data necessary for STOXX to independently calculate and publish the index value on a daily basis. Efficient’s proprietary database will be used to constitute the index universe for the annual selection of the index constituents. Prices from Efficient’s managed account platform will also be utilized for the calculation of the daily index value.

Since 1999, Efficient has offered actively managed, broadly diversified multi-manager CTA portfolios to many of the world’s most sophisticated qualified institutional investors. Now, with the availability of its newly created private platform, Efficient believes that it is well positioned to work with a variety of institutional investors on customized managed futures solutions, both active and passive, providing them with quality multi-manager CTA exposure and CTA beta at a low cost.
