NOTE: These models represent hypothetical returns on strategies we will be introducing in the future. These opportunities would only be for investors with the assets to responsibly take on the higher risks often associated with investing in managed futures and hedge funds. We must be able to verify that you are an accredited investor with a net worth of at least $2M excluding your primary residence, and you must meet the requirement for a Qualified Eligible Person, as defined by the Commodities Exchange Act.
