The Managed Futures Pinnacle Awards recognizes excellence exclusively in the managed futures space. Presented by CME Group and BarclayHedge, the Awards honor the top managers in the industry today, while providing networking opportunities for 400+ alternative investment industry participants.

WHY MANAGED FUTURES?

Managed futures continue to see inflows due to its low correlation to other hedge fund strategies. Access to liquid alternative investments is improving as investor demand grows for the diversification, non-correlated returns, and risk-reducing potential these strategies offer. Our goal is to highlight these benefits, honor the top managers, and increase visibility into the managed futures space.
