Back to our regular programming and we are pleased to share our ranking of liquid alternative strategies. While much will have changed once the March numbers start to trickle in a few days, we should enjoy the successes that some managers have been able to achieve.
Based on the most recent return data that we have available, we can provide a comprehensive overview of the top-performing and bottom-performing strategies for each category, taking into account both monthly and yearly results. Our analysis is based on proprietary composite data streams that we have compiled, but we must note that there is always the possibility of errors or inaccuracies in our calculations.
To be included in our rankings, funds must have reported returns for the current reporting month. This means that we may not have data on all funds in a given category, and our rankings should be considered within the context of the funds that we do have information on.

It is worth noting that while the general Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) industry tends to be trend-driven, there are always outliers that are driven by specific markets or market effects. This can make for a high degree of dispersion among the best and worst-performing funds within a given category, but it can also provide valuable insights into how different strategies react to different market developments.
By studying the performance of individual CTAs, investors can gain a deeper understanding of the various factors that contribute to success in this space, including risk management, diversification, and the ability to adapt to changing market conditions. This can be particularly useful for those who are looking to build a diversified portfolio of alternative investments, as CTAs can offer a source of non-correlated returns that can help to balance out risk in traditional asset classes.
To explore the full list of CTAs and their rankings, including dynamic updates as new data becomes available, we invite you to visit our website at the Link provided. Here, you will find a wealth of information on the performance of different CTAs across a range of markets and strategies, as well as insights and analysis from our team of experts in the field.

Market Neutral is a popular strategy among investors due to its low volatility and steady returns over time. Unlike other strategies that may produce large gains or losses in a short period, Market Neutral tends to accumulate returns gradually over time. This makes it an attractive option for those looking to achieve steady, long-term growth without taking on excessive risk.
While the average performance of Market Neutral funds is largely driven by factor performance, there are also specific funds that may be exposed to unique strategies that are not captured by academic factors. This can create opportunities for investors to gain an edge by identifying and investing in funds that are able to deliver above-average returns due to their specialized knowledge or approach.

Equity Long/Short strategies are investment approaches that involve taking both long and short positions in equities in order to potentially profit from the performance of individual stocks or the broader equity markets. As per common knowledge, it is believed that approximately half of the returns for these strategies are influenced by the underlying equity markets.
This means that if the equity markets are performing well, then a Long/Short equity strategy is likely to produce positive returns, and if the markets are underperforming, the strategy is likely to produce negative returns.
Therefore, while the performance of Long/Short equity strategies is influenced by the broader equity markets, the best and worst managers are typically those who are able to identify and capitalize on idiosyncratic security-specific situations, as opposed to simply relying on market trends.

Similar to Equity Long/Short managers, Fixed Income managers are typically influenced by the underlying market conditions. However, for this list, the focus is on managers who are sensitive to a specific subsector of the fixed-income market, particularly those engaged in the lowest part of the capital structure.
The lowest part of the capital structure refers to the debt securities that have the highest risk of default, but also potentially offer higher yields. These managers are typically seeking to generate higher returns by taking on higher levels of credit risk, and they may specialize in a particular sector, such as high-yield corporate bonds or distressed debt.
