Commodity Trading Advisors make up the backbone of the Managed Futures industry. Some key attributes that separate CTAs from other styles of trading investments in the futures and commodities world include:
• CTAs publish what is a called a Disclosure Document. It details information about the CTA, the trading style or strategy, markets traded, if options are used, starting minimums, performance data, principal background, etc. Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) publish performance net of any and all fees.
• The CTAs manage accounts via a limited Power of Attorney (POA). An investor will have their own individual separated account: that is, their account and the traded futures contracts are not co-mingled with anyone elses trades unlike that of a pool or a fund.
• A CTA program has two types of fees that typically can be charged:
•Management Fee: This fee often ranges from 0% to 2.25% annually, usually billed monthly or quarterly in arrears. The fee is generally calculated as a percentage of the annualized asset value in the account on the end-of-month or end-of-quarter date.
•Incentive Fee: CTAs charge a percentage of profits. This is the incentive the trader has in order to make money for the client. The incentive fee is only charged on net profits, net meaning after prior incentive fees and all costs of trading have been deducted.

Now lets review performance in order to select CTAs that line up with your interests! This task is made much easier with our assistance using our extensive Managed Futures Database powered by Autumn Gold. Log in below or request a password if it is your first time here.
Keep in mind that you are welcome to drive the database solo. However, we really encourage you to take along one of our Foremost Capital Investment Specialists along for the first few drives. We think theres more to evaluating the performance of a trading manager and programs than just a few stats. Though those stats are important, there is more to the picture, especially to the well-seasoned eye. Foremost Principals have personally vetted many of the managers in the database and has invested in MANY of the Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs). We have experiences wed like to share that we believe will make you a better investor.There is more to a car than the engine horsepower, and there is more to a trading program than Rate of Return. Let us share that experience with you.
These comments are generally true for most Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) however, an investor must read the disclosure document of the CTA for the details as they relate to their programmatic investment.
RISKS While the benefits of using Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) to manage your futures investments are numerous, there is no way to completely eliminate risk. Investments in futures contracts are inherently risky due to the significant leverage involved in the type of contracts traded. Each investor must carefully consider whether these types of investments are appropriate for them. Investing in futures provides the opportunity for elevated returns and with that opportunity comes the elevated risk of loss. Only true risk capital should be used to invest.

I have enjoyed working with Peter since 2009. I think he is the most conscientious broker I have ever encountered in my more than 30 years of investing. He always responds to my queries very quickly and never leaves me confused or with more questions. It is nice to know that I can contact him and get an immediate response. We have enjoyed talking about more than investing on many occasions; including my Mario Andretti Racing Experience at Charlotte Motor Speedway where I drove an Indy 500 racecar at 160 MPH. Peter and I enjoyed talking about that experience!

I have been dealing with Paul for over 20 yrs. He has traveled to my small town in Ohio twice. I am a very small client and not one of his brightest, but over the years Paul has made me feel like a friend. He is one of Foremosts best.

I have held accounts with Foremost Trading for a number of years and value the diversity these investments contribute to my overall portfolio. The relationship I maintain with this company is not of the auto-pilot variety. I stay with Foremost because of its people and their emphasis on ethical business practice. My account contact, Colson, checks in about investment performance and opportunities that might be a good fit for me. He responds promptly and courteously whenever I contact him with a question. When a crisis hit the industry (the PFG calamity), the Foremost team, victims themselves, put their clients first with timely, helpful communications and assistance. Whether they know it or not, the Foremost business philosophy is to treat each client as if he or she is the only client.

I have known Steven Hansen for 30+ years, even before he joined the CBOT in 1982. He has always been a trusted friend and confidant to my mother and me regarding trades with the NYSE throughout the years. He now oversees both my IRA account and commodity trading account (CTA) through Foremost. Steven is very involved with his clients investing concerns. He responds quickly to questions and researches answers thoroughly. He is generous with his time and I feel my investment concerns are on his priority dashboard.
