The CFM IS Trends Trust provides investors with a global diversified exposure to Long Term Trend Following strategies across 5 global core asset classes and over 100 different markets. It’s designed to capture long term trends across a wide range of markets and assets.

And unlike most managed futures products offered in the Australian market, CFM provides two options that are significantly lower in fees than the competitors.  And given the correlations between CTAs can be high, the fees paid really matters.

  1. Class A – 10% Volatility.  0.80% MER + 10% Performance Fee.
  2. Class B – 15% Volatility.  1.425% MER.  No Performance Fee.


The fund seeks to benefit from both rising and falling markets from a diverse range of underlying investments. In our view, Long Term Trend Following is a classic Alternative Beta strategy as it has a low correlation to traditional markets, is persistent and scalable over long time horizons and is conceptually simple. Long Term Trend Following is the core of most Managed Futures or CTA programs and has been around for over 200 centuries.

The Fund invests in Commodities, Currencies, Rates, Bonds and Equities.
