Horizon to offer Business Boot Camp to emerging CTAs

Monday, July 29, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update, for New Managers - Horizon Cash Management LLC, the investment advisor specializing in active cash management solutions for the alternative investment industry, today announced that it will offer a first-of-its-kind Business Boot Camp for Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) in conjunction with the CTA Expo, September 18, UBS Conference Center, Chicago.

Horizon’s Business Boot Camp is designed to educate and advise managed futures managers about the key ingredients necessary for building a successful asset management business. The curriculum will provide value to emerging managers, firms that want to enhance their internal processes, and businesses in need of fresh approaches to best practices.

Diane Mix Birnberg, Horizon Cash Management Founder and Chairman, said, “It is increasingly vital for managed futures professionals to understand the necessary components of building a sustainable asset management firm. With consistent increases of institutional asset flows into managed futures strategies, these firms need to have institutional quality operations. The days of setting up shop as a trader with a small staff are over.”

Business Boot Camp is Horizon’s most recent industry-wide educational initiative. The firm is a recognized leader in providing guidance and best practices solutions to the managed futures industry on key asset management and customer protection issues.

For Business Boot Camp, Horizon will bring together a speaking faculty of industry leaders to offer strategic advice and solutions for addressing essential management and operational issues such as: business plans; infrastructure; finance and regulation; buy-side perspectives; and marketing and sales.

The current speaking faculty includes: Mary McDonnell, Senior Advisor/Consultant, Simon Compliance; Scott Price, Regional Director, Americas, Custom House Global Fund Services; Terri Engelman-Rhoads, President, Midwest Management Group; Horizon’s Diane Mix Birnberg and, serving as moderator, Ginger Szala, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Futures Magazine. Business Boot Camp will take place the day preceding CTA Expo, and all CTA Expo delegates will be invited to the Business Boot Camp networking reception.
