Resolve's Gestalt University

Sep 13, 2022

As we returned from the summer break, the season’s opening episode brought the ReSolve crew together for a deep dive into Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) strategies, often referred to as Managed Futures, covering topics that included:

  • The path we all took to become CTA fund managers
  • The role these strategies can and should play in portfolios
  • How to position them within a broader asset allocation framework
  • ‘Closet betas’ vs true diversifiers
  • Are CTAs necessarily synonymous with trend following?
  • The many faces of trend following
  • ‘Lumpy’ returns and prolonged winters
  • The role central banks have played in reducing outcome dispersion across asset classes
  • Behavioral hurdles and challenges
  • Going beyond trend and the tradeoffs associated with stacking other strategies
  • All-weather vs all-terrain investing
  • And much more

This is “ReSolve’s Riffs” – live on YouTube every Friday afternoon to debate the most relevant investment topics of the day, hosted by Adam Butler, Mike Philbrick and Rodrigo Gordillo of ReSolve Global* and Richard Laterman of ReSolve Asset Management Inc.
