Roland Austrup is CEO and CIO of Integrated Managed Futures (“IMFC”) and the longest-standing CTA in the Canadian marketplace. In this episode of Strategic Investor Radio, host Charlie Wright interviews Mr. Austrup, who explains the advantages of adding managed futures to an investment portfolio.
Mr. Austrup explains that the strategy involves investing across multiple asset classes – commodities, currencies, and financial indices – through the futures market. His firm, IMFC, uses quantitative analysis to select long and/or short positions across those asset classes based on value, momentum, and yield. He says his specialty is assessing those characteristics in underlying markets.
