Money Managers  

Both, Commodity Trading Advisors (CTAs) and Commodity Pool Operators (CPOs) are Asset Managers and both are regulated by the US. Federal Government through the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) with additional oversight from the National Futures Association (NFA).

A Commodity Trading Advisor (CTA) is an individual, who, or an organization, which, for compensation or profit, advises others, directly or indirectly, as to the value of, or the advisability of buying or selling futures contracts  or commodity options. Providing advice indirectly includes exercising trading authority over a customer's account, as well as giving advice through written publications or other media. NFA requires a CTA to deliver a Disclosure Document for the offered program to a prospective client prior to, or when it delivers its' advisory agreement to the client.

A Commodity Pool Operator (CPO) is an individual, who, or an organization, which operates or seeks funds for a commodity pool; that is, an enterprise in which funds contributed by a number of persons, are combined for the purpose of trading futures contracts or commodity options, or to invest in another commodity pool. NFA requires CPOs to deliver a Disclosure Document to a prospective pool participant prior to, or when it delivers the pool’s subscription agreement to the participant. CPOs are also required to provide NFA and pool participants annual financial statements. In addition, CPOs are required to provide pool participants monthly or quarterly account statements.

CTAs and CPOs make available their trading experience and knowledge to high-risk takers and true speculators looking for exceptional returns on their investments. If in light of your financial condition, you find yourself capable and ready to enter this risky type of alternative investment, but lack the time and expertise to take trading matters in your own hands, scrolling through Broker Junction’s list of US.-licensed Money Managers ready to trade your managed account might be a good point to start for you.

Note: According to the National Futures Association, there are more than 3000 CFTC-registered CTAs and/or CPOs.
