Mr. Balarie brings on board industry expertise in both the commodities and managed futures arena
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 7, 2008
Archer Financial Services, Inc., ("AFS"), a wholly owned subsidiary of ADM Investor Services, Inc., ("ADMIS"), today announced the formation of Balarie Capital Management ("BCM"), a division of AFS created with the specific purpose of helping Institutional and High Net Worth investors achieve diversification by providing them with products and services that are typically non-correlated with their traditional investment portfolios. AFS also announced the appointment of Emanuel Balarie as managing director of the division.
"Mr. Balarie brings on board industry expertise in both the commodities and managed futures arena" said Kurt Johnson, President of AFS. "The combination of his experience, BCM's consultative approach to managed futures investments, access to hundreds of Commodity Trading Advisors all over the globe, and the financial integrity and operational structure of ADMIS will allow us to provide investors with a wide array of products and services."
Emanuel Balarie added, "While the asset flow in the managed futures sector has increased significantly over the last several years, we still feel that there is a need for a firm that is able to provide a consultative approach to managed futures portfolios. The goal is not to recommend cookie-cutter type portfolios for every investor, but to look at the investor's individual profile and portfolio to determine the specific allocation that is most appropriate for the investor. This approach is especially attractive to institutions and investors that have to meet specific portfolio requirements."
BCM works with high-net worth investors, family offices, pensions, and endowment funds who are interested in adding managed futures to their investment portfolios. In addition, Balarie, through its affiliation with ADMIS, offers clearing and execution services for Commodity Trading Advisors, Fund of Funds, and professional traders.
