Jan 24 2007 | 10:25am ET

Crystal Lake, Ill.-based KMJ Capital Management’s KMJ Currency program, which trades the major G7 currencies on a discretionary basis, has been selected for the AlphaMetrix Mosaic Platform. The program ended 2006 up 28.78% and currently manages some $33 million in assets.

Mosaic uses currency futures and forward and spot contracts on the foreign exchange markets. Ken Jakubzak, CIO, bases his trading decisions on fundamental macroeconomic, financial and geopolitical events and other external factors that affect market prices.

The KMJ Currency program charges a 2% management fee and 20% performance fee with a $500,000 minimum investment requirement.

Prior to managing the KMJ Currency program in 1991, Jakubzak served as manager of the managed funds division of First Commercial Financial Group, a futures brokerage in Chicago, where he was responsible for structuring and managing futures investment programs for First Commercial's clients.

The AlphaMetrix Mosaic Platform provides access to more than 60 CTAs, global macro, and foreign exchange traders. It offers real time performance analytics, portfolio construction, and risk management tools.
