A guaranteed introducing broker of RJ O’Brien since 1997, FF&CG specializes exclusively in managed futures, offering only a select few CTA programs that pass our stringent proprietary criteria, while providing personalized investor-to-investor discussions and specifically tailored recommendations.
While most managed futures providers display long directory lists of CTAs which they deem suitable for client investment, FF&CG’s proprietary selection process runs counter to that of our industry peers.
FF&CG has over 25 years of experience in exercising a strict proprietary selection process in vetting the CTAs it offers. The number of CTAs FF&CG recommends are few simply because only a small percentage of CTAs actually meets FF&CG’s stringent criteria and standards.
We are not a one-size-fits-all firm. We take a very discipline and consistent approach to investing in managed futures.
Unlike many in the managed futures space, FF&CG does not recommend nor promote CTA programs in which pre-negotiated fee agreements exist. Clients seeking access to managers (CTAs) and funds that FF&CG does not recommend, should seek out a less specialized introducing broker. FF&CG’s principal is personally exposed to the CTAs and funds FF&CG offers and recommends to investor clients. Further, the firm does not offer, nor recommends CTAs or funds in which the firm’s principal is not exposed.
CLIENT SERVICES AND RELATIONS
At FF&CG, the typical mechanical “broker to investor” communications do not exist. We strive to engage in “true investor to investor dialogue.” From pre-investment discussions on capitalization and how to maximize portfolio allocations, to notional funding and periodic risk assessments, our conversations with clients and potential clients are personalized and meaningful. FF&CG’s principal has been an investor, alongside his clients, in managed futures for over 25 years.
Utilizing model-based trading, FF&CG provides strong strategic guidance on systematic methodology/sector/market/time frame diversification, incorporated with corresponding risk management to each CTA and program offering. Discretionary CTAs and Option Writers are never recommended.
