Autumn Gold Portfolio Management recently launched the Autumn Gold Multi-Advisor Fund, which provides investors with a daily valuation of the fund.

Avery is the author of the book, “Building Wealth with Managed Futures,” in which she explains her statistical methods for evaluating commodity trading advisers.
