OFFSHORE FUNDS GROUP
FTM is a dynamic investment product that places emphasis on capital preservation first and foremost while achieving consistent returns and maintaining low volatility. FTM achieves this by spreading investment risk between Futures, Term Deposits and Capital Secured Investments. It is the culmination of a search for an investment portfolio that can provide consistent returns irrespective of market conditions.
The Global Financial Crisis clearly illustrated that investment classes were far more correlated than most investors had otherwise suspected. After the dramatic falls in global markets it was clear that traditional asset classes such as equities could not be counted on for diversification simply by means of geographical location. Main stream markets and emerging markets alike experienced large falls as did commodities, bonds and treasuries.
There were however a select group of assets that were unaffected by the turmoil and this is what led to the creation of an investment product that could generate consistent returns irrespective of market conditions.
The Investment Approach is the result of:
• 9 years of research
The investment style can best be categorized as risk averse with 75% of the portfolio held in capital secured investments.
Capital is secured at a rate of $3 to 1 by way of medical accounts receivables. For every $50 invested the company holds $150 of medical accounts receivables. In essence holding 3 times the amount of investor funds in receivables ensures security of the underlying investment.
To reduce the risk even further the receivables are held by a range of insurance companies thereby lessening the risk of default or adverse effects on the portfolio.
By structuring the portfolio in this manner the company has no correlation to traditional equity markets and should continue to perform irrespective of market direction.
5% is held in cash in short term interest bearing accounts.
This enables 80% of the portfolio no correlation to market movements or performance. The benefit of this is to reduce volatility and increase security during uncertain economic times.
The remaining 20% is invested in Managed futures for a maximum period of 6 months a year.
Managed Futures have proven themselves to be one of the strongest pillars of investing over the past 30 years averaging 17% to 20% per annum while allowing for diversification from traditional bond and equity markets. Furthermore the futures proportion of FTM has -0.12 correlation to the S&P 500 which means falls in the equity markets have no effect on the ability of the fund to perform. More importantly futures tend to excel in a falling market.
When not invested in managed futures the money is invested in short term interest bearing accounts.
100% of the portfolio is held in capital secured investments for a minimum of 6 months a year.
The Maximum risk to the portfolio is 20% for a maximum of 6 months a year.
