Episode 671,  Feb 21, 2018, 04:18 PM

Listen to David, a CFA charterholder and designated speaker for the CFA Institute, Managing Member and CIO of Coloma, a Commodity Trading Advisory firm (CTA), discuss the role and opportunity of commodities investing thru the futures markets. Coloma uses quantitative methods plus fundamental analysis, applied with discretion, to create investment strategies. Discussing the misconception by many investors of the futures marketplace, David explains the role of commodities in adding a non-correlated strategy/asset class to an investment portfolio.  Coloma offers two strategies, one focusing on commodities and the other on volatility.  Using fundamental analysis, which is rarely applied to commodities, Coloma offers an alternative approach to commodity investing vs. the usual trend-following method.  Anyone interested in adding truly low-correlated assets in a portfolio will find this interview to be very interesting.
