ALTERNATIVE INVESTMENTS

Wedbush Securities can provide even greater diversity to your portfolio with opportunities to invest in select non-traditional investments such as managed futures/commodity funds and private equity funds.

MANAGED FUTURES FUNDS

The Wedbush Managed Futures Program provides investors exposure to physical assets (metals, energies, and grains) and financial assets (stocks, currencies, and bonds) as well as the ability to profit from being long or short in any of these classes.

KEY BENEFITS OF MANAGED FUTURES:

Transparency

Managed futures strategies are based on exchange-traded futures markets, allowing for real-time access to market prices, reporting and analytics including on the public websites of futures exchanges. Daily statements reflect the market value of your managed accounts allowing you to track and see every trade.

Potential to Profit in a Variety of Market Conditions

Managed futures trading advisors can generate profit in both increasing or decreasing markets due to their ability to go long (buy) futures positions in anticipation of rising markets or go short (sell) futures positions in anticipation of falling markets. This ability, coupled with its low correlation with most traditional asset classes, has resulted in managed futures funds performing well relative to traditional asset classes during adverse conditions for stocks and bonds.

Diversification

Managed futures are highly flexible financial instruments traded on many regulated financial and commodity markets around the world. By broadly diversifying across global markets, managed futures can simultaneously profit from price changes in stock, bond, currency and money markets, as well as from diverse commodity markets having low correlation to traditional asset classes such as stocks and bonds.

Managed Account Structure

Unlike a hedge fund, CTA managed futures strategies are set-up in your name and traded on your behalf. This provides you with access to all statements and trading information directly from the clearing firm. Unlike most hedge funds which have a lock-up period, futures accounts allow you to liquidate your account and receive your funds in as little as two business days.

PRIVATE EQUITY FUNDS

Through Wedbush Capital Partners we also offer private equity fund opportunities to high-net worth investors, which focuses on recapitalizations, growth investments and management-led buyouts of lower middle-market companies based in Southern California.
