Managed Futures Funds Lawyers Based in New York
A futures contract comprises the agreement to sell or buy an asset at a date in the future and at an agreed price. A futures contract is pretty standard, and the agreement basically trades on an exchange basis. One party agrees to buy a certain commodity and agree on a date for its delivery.
The selling party will then have to provide the security as agreed upon in the contract agreement. If you have signed up for such a contract but had failed to receive the commodity or had failed to deliver, talk to an attorney at Weltz Law.

How Do Managed Futures Funds Work?
Futures contracts allow investors to lock in a specific price which will protect them from future wild price fluctuations, either up or down. The parties involved in a typical futures contract are often hedgers that need to trade commodities which make up the basis of their business. Apart from commodities, individual stocks, bonds, and shares can also be traded. Most investors prefer this mode of investment mainly because they can choose the investment amount while paying up a relatively lower price beforehand. This process provides them with bigger potential for leverage as opposed to directly owning the securities in question.
Investing in Managed Futures Funds
It is not a tough feat to get into the sector of managed futures fund trade. An investor simply needs to sign up for an account with a broker that serves the markets of interest and agree on a particular security that is feasible. Managed futures funds offer investors a great investment variety which makes them a great option for those seeking a diversification in their investment portfolio.
Managed futures investment programs provide flexibility within the financial and commodity markets with securities ranging from:
- energy products
- interest rates
