Commodity trading advisors have outperformed their hedge fund counterparts through the financial crisis and investors have taken notice. In fact, more than one-third say they intend to add to macro and trend-following CTAs, according to a new survey.
Distressed strategies are also getting more interest with more than 23% of investors increasing their allocations to that strategy, according to a report from the Greenwich Roundtable and Quinnipiac University.
On the flip side, investors soured on their hedge fund investments, with more than 22% indicating that they were lowering their allocations to the troubled asset class. The survey also revealed that cash was king in the vast majority of investors’ portfolios with two-thirds increasing their cash positions.
