CHICAGO, July 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kottke-Commodity Capital recently won Managed Futures Pinnacle Award as the 2013 Best Single Sector CTA 5-Year Track Record. The methodology to determine the winners was based on quantitative data from BarclayHedge using the top five performance metrics selected by over 100 allocators. The awards ceremony, hosted by CME Group and BarclayHedge, honored the top managers in the industry and was held at the Four Seasons Hotel on June 17, 2014.

Kottke-Commodity Capital consistently places in the Top 10 of its category in BarclayHedges' monthly rankings and ranks number one in 36-Month Compounded Annual Return Sharpe Ratio. The program was also nominated for a Pinnacle Award in the Best Single Sector CTA 1-Year Track Record category.

"Winning the Pinnacle Award is a big honor for Kottke and speaks volumes about our portfolio managers," said Peter Keenan, Director of Managed Investments, Kottke Associates. "We've always known what a fantastic opportunity this fund provides for investors, but receiving this recognition is an implicit 'seal of approval' that others recognize, too." 

"My co-manager Mark Hawkins and I focus on commercial-type arbitrages that reflect current market opportunities for grain warehouse and processing businesses. To that we will blend in other types of trades, including directional, in limited volume so as to keep risk low under eventualities likely or not. The asymmetric nature of the portfolio that results keeps risk and margin requirements low. Over time this approach has proved attractive for a wide swath of investors, and we were gratified to win the Pinnacle Award for our 5-year record."

Kottke-Commodity Capital is a fundamental discretionary CTA focused specifically on the agricultural futures markets listed on the CME Group.  Kottke Associates is a non-clearing member firm of the CME Group, a Guaranteed Introducing Broker to ADMIS and is a registered CTA with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, (CFTC), and is a member of the Nation Futures Association (NFA).
