FMF Factset Analytics Insight

FMF aims for true absolute-return performance using a managed futures approach. The fund takes direct long and short positions in futures across commodities currency and equity indexes. The ability to offset exposures within asset classes could produce low correlations, an area where direct-competitor WDTI excels. FMF charges 95 bps, roughly average for the space. In over a year since its launch, the fund has struggled to gather assets, but the performance has been good. Returns have been respectable, volatility has been low, as have correlations to major asset classes.
