HAMPDEN, PA, September 12, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- High level managed futures investing has essentially been reserved for wealthy individuals and corporations with minimum accounts of $1,000,000 being standard in the industry. Through his firm, Hoffman Asset Management, award winning Commodity Trading Advisor Dean Hoffman is changing the playing field with the launch of a managed futures program for smaller investors in the $30,000 - $125,000 range. "Hoffman Asset Managed is dedicated to overcoming the challenges of the small account conundrum and serving smaller investors who want the benefits of a high level individual managed account," says Hoffman.
One of the chief reasons cited for extraordinarily high minimums in a managed futures account is the need to simultaneously trade in multiple commodity markets for diversification. Large managed futures accounts can afford the high margins and exposure to multiple markets.
Hoffman is able to overcome those challenges with his new futures trading platform. For two consecutive years, the futures trading software Hoffman developed was named, "One of the top 10 futures trading platforms of all time," by Futures Magazine. His new platform is a more powerful version, integrating many trading systems in one, and offering the capability to analyze and spot opportunities in over 70 futures markets every day, while adjusting risk levels along the way.
Because of the efficiency of his platform, Hoffman is able to offer a high level managed futures account to smaller investors.
The Growth in Managed Futures
Managed futures have risen significantly in popularity over the last 10 years as investors have sought an asset class that is uncorrelated to the stock market - offering protection from market volatility. According to Barclay's Hedge, during 2008's stock market meltdown, managed futures had one of their best years on record.
Hoffman sees managed futures again stealing the spotlight in the market in coming years. "2010 has just recently begun to see the raised volatility usually associated with trending markets," says Hoffman.
