Lincoln, Neb.-based DEC Capital’s Commodity Alternatives program is picking up where it left off last year. The discretionary agricultural program gained an estimated 5.2% in January, and ended 2006 up 44%, which is a new high for the program. It is currently managing $18.6 million.
The program’s current core positions include corn options activity, a bullish deferred soybean strategy, and a bear spread in Chicago wheat, according to the firm. DEC uses fundamental analysis to trade corn, wheat, soybean complex, cattle and lean hogs.
The program charges a 2% management and 20% performance fee, with a $3 million minimum investment requirement for managed accounts.
The DEC Futures Fund, which trades the Commodity Alternatives program, has been the primary beneficiary of the program’s success. The fund was up an estimated 14.6% last month, and rose 154.6% last year. It currently manages $6.5 million in assets.
