About Managed Futures

The Abbey Capital Futures Strategy Fund (the “Fund”) is an actively managed mutual fund which will seek long-term capital appreciation. Current income is a secondary objective.

  • Managed futures managers can take long and short positions and trade multiple markets; this gives them the ability to potentially profit from falling and rising markets

  • There are a range of trading strategies employed by managers including trendfollowing, mean reversion, discretionary macro and value

  • The drivers of returns for managed futures are different to those of long equity portfolios

  • Combining managed futures with equities has the potential to create portfolio benefits above those experienced by an equity-only portfolio**

** These benefits may include a lower drawdown and volatility profile and a better risk-adjusted return. However, managed futures may not provide these benefits and these benefits are dependent upon a number of variable factors including market environments. Trading in managed futures is not suitable for all investors given its speculative nature and the high level of risk involved

The Morningstar Analyst RatingTM for funds is the summary expression of Morningstar’s forward-looking analysis of a fund. Morningstar analysts assign the ratings on a five-tier scale with three positive ratings of Gold, Silver, and Bronze, a Neutral rating, and a Negative rating. Morningstar evaluates funds based on five key pillars - Process, Performance, People, Parent, and Price - which its analysts believe lead to funds that are more likely to outperform over the long term on a risk-adjusted basis. The Morningstar Analyst Rating should not be used as the sole basis in evaluating a mutual fund. Morningstar Analyst Ratings are based on Morningstar’s current expectations about future events; therefore, in no way does Morningstar represent ratings as a guarantee nor should they be viewed by an investor as such. Morningstar Analyst Ratings involve unknown risks and uncertainties which may cause Morningstar’s expectations not to occur or to differ significantly from what we expected. The five key pillars are not weighted equally in Morningstar’s evaluation of a fund.

The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or “star rating”, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product’s monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar RatingTM for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar RatingTM metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. The Fund was rated 4 stars over the 3-year period ended 30 June 2017 among 91 Managed Futures funds.
